I chose soft pink colors for a girl and to blend with her nursery bedding. Hopefully it will be something she can use for a while and then treasure as a keepsake.
This piece has it all...large areas where you can just get in a rhythm stitch for a while, sequins, beads, and composition stitches that are so much fun! You can read all about the techniques in my previous Mother Darling post but I have used this basketweave/beading technique several times since for lettering. You basketweave the entire letter and then put brick-beading on top. It really makes the letters stand up from the canvas and have some clear dimension.
I have some new canvases that I hope to start soon so cross your fingers I start getting some stitching time in and I will have new things to show you.
Until then, happy stitching!
