Finishing Lesson #2
I finished Lesson #2. The top white area is worked in blanc Soie d alger in a round eyelet stitch and then the Anchor yellow cross stitches are wrapped. To the right of that is Kreinik in a Square boss stitched with wrapped cross stitches. Below that is the Medallion w with Smyrna crosses around it and lastly, the large area on the bottom is done in a Saint John's stitch with more yellow wrapped crosses. Note how each side is a mirror color image of the other.
Nana has asked to see the back side of this piece.....this is an unusual request, but I took a photo of it for you......I am not of the school that the back has to be perfect, obviously, but here it is.
