Rosemary's Garden

I completed the Rosemary's Garden panel tonight. First I finished the tent stitched squares that I had started last week. Then I put in the yellow cross stitches with six strands of pale yellow Splendor. The petals were also put in using six strands of the lavender Splendor. Using the six strands of silk makes both the center and petals of the flower stand out away from the tent stitched background. Great idea by Terry!

The tiny little flowers are precious, aren't they? And using more plies to make them stand out against the background is genius.

Terry Dryden's very clever.

T minus 7 days! Hurrah!

Looking good enough to eat. I just love these colors and looking forward to see more of this project.
