This is the start of the ANG Stitch of the Month project. Each month a new stitch is posted. In January, the outline was posted and we were to trace or baste the outline in. February's stitch is way down at the bottom in the right corner. Since I did not want to drag my hand, threads, etc, across the stitches while I worked all the others, I waited until the March stitch came out. I also chose not to work the colors or canvas that Tony Minieri had recommended. His colors were red, green and gold. I am doing mine in white, ecru and metallics, and on the black canvas. The March stitch starts out with an offset Cashmere stitch. I used three strands of Splendor in color 899. Tonight I redid the line along the sash--ripit and restitch it--and then filled in the rest of this pattern on the left side. The open area will be filled in also. This pattern is also on the right side of the piece. Follow the angle across to the other side to see the area where it will be.
