Starting the background

This is a closeup shot of the Double Stitch that Sharon G has recommended as the background for this canvas. After some doodling, we decided on two strands of the Waterlilies thread. I think it looks great! The shine of the silk does not show up well in the photo, but it does in person.

It is beautiful! Very feminine and lacy without being overpowering.

SharonG says this is Double Stitch from SuZy Murphy's Mini Stitches I think. Am I right?

Yes, I goofed and have already fixed it, and it is from Portable Stitches too!
