Still Playing


I finished stitching on this last night. Using variegated thread can be challenging but I love the effect. It can be difficult to control where the color changes occur, but I'm pretty happy with this so far. This photo is even better than the first ones I posted. The wool is a teal or turquoise color, not really the blue it looked like in these photos. I have some pink seed beads and bugle beads that I purchased on my recent trip to Pueblo. I want to do something more on the pink circle and I'm thinking beads might be it.
