|(From a French blog - not my stitching)|
However, even this stitcher made changes. Which brings me to my question - do all reds (particularly hand-dyeds) fuzz and/or bleed? Because this design is supposed to have a border of red, then white, then green. I did the red (which the stitcher of the piece pictured did not), and as I was stitching the white, it started to look.....positively pink. I thought it was going to be okay, but the more I stitched the less I liked it. So I frogged out all the white, and decided to leave it with just the red border - I might make a white and green twisted cording when I do the final finishing.
I've also started this little freebie from Hands On Design to be a gift for a friend - I'm leaving off the bottom of the quote about stitching, since he doesn't stitch. But now I keep humming that darned Styx song.... you're welcome. >:)
I should be back with a picture or 2 of my own soon!
