Fourteen Shades of Orange and Yellow
So here's Edith Wolford after a week of working on her. And yes - there are FOURTEEN shades of orange and yellow there...ack! I had to card up all of the floss in order to keep the cut strands straight - once I cut floss, I rewrap on the card. Clearly stitching grid by grid is really working for this piece - it's moving along quite quickly now. I really love the orange and purples together - where else but in nature could you get away with that?
The folds on the iris petals will be a lot more distinct once they are backstitched.
Up next in rotation: Back to Knotgarden from Chatelaine!
