Aurora Borealis, Pattern 7

Today, I got out some of the rotation pieces....this is Aurora Borealis by Marnie Ritter.  It was presented in the May June 2001 issue of Needlepoint Now.  I cropped the photo so you can better see column two.  When I last worked on this, I did the bottom turquoise pattern and today I did the pattern above it, #7.  First I laid in the Kreinik Braid and then worked vertical rows of stitches in Waterliles.  Last one strand of Soie d Alger distorts the vertically laid metallic so it looks wavy.  This pattern is actually Revisited.....I got it from Ms. Ritter at Callaway Gardens in order to get all the different fibers already kitted.

Clever you to pick up the thread kit for the later version to use on the earlier one!

This is really lovely. It must be great fun to work, too. Marnie Ritter creates lovely stitches for her projects.
