Purse progress - 1
This past week was a busy one, with a Needlepoint Now deadline to meet, some canvases to paint, and more than one project to stitch. But a good start has been made on the purse project!
It's being stitched in basketweave in sea glass colors with Vineyard Silk Classic and Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #033 so far. The larger octagons were worked in VSC Celestial (royal blue) and Cascade (light jade) with the smaller intersections in Spray. The top of the canvas to the bottom line of completed octagons represents one side of the purse.
Working from my stash, the Celestial and Cascade threads have been exhausted, but I at least know how much more I'll need to buy on my next trip to my LNS. There are more sea glass colors in my stash that will be added later
