Cassique Stitch is done

This is what is left of the DMC Overdyed #4150 that I used on the Cassique stitch. I put it on a white card in hopes that you could see the slight overdyed variation.
I completed the sash section tonight and used the #12 017HL for the tied filling stitch. Tomorrow I will start at the top right to fill in the next area.

Thank you, Pat. This is indeed subtle but I can see the shades of ivory and ecru in this photo. Must be great in person! This is one design that probably is 10,000 times better in person. Monochromatic pieces just don't do good photos.

Pretty! I really like the DMC overdyes both floss and perle cotton - I forget to use them, as they are buried somewhere in my stash.

Hi Pat, this is coming along beautifully! I love using a monochromatic colorway especially in home decor. I haven't heard of the Cassique Stitch before, very nice and perfect for this piece.
