Peach Delight, Part II of Step One

I realized that I had not shown you the photo of Barbara Richardson's Peach Delight that was featured on the back cover of Needlepoint Now. Here is what her piece looks like:

After finishing the bargello pattern with the Kreinik, I then stitched in the corresponding bargello, to complete the outside, using Bravo. The pattern called for 124, but I used 129.

You will notice that is teal/turquoise in the card. I did not want that in the piece, so I cut out the section of that color, and only used the remaining part of the overdyed.

One thing you will hear me say time and again, is that it is your piece, so you are free to change colors, or even fiber. I always stitch a design I like, but I frequently change colors to fit the scheme of who is getting the piece, and where it may go.

That will make a nice top for the box.

Are you going to use a similar box for yours? From Sudberry?

I love your colours - the changes you made. You are so right that these things should relect our own individuality.
