It's finished! The 12 Days of Christmas bargello is done. I finished it Friday night after spending several days trying to decide how to do the center. I did lot's of doodle stitching before I settled on this waffle variation. Since it is in FyreWerks Soft Sheen, it didn't photograph too well - too much reflection. I will get a better picture for the title page when it is offered for sale. That won't be till after I get my website up, but it is too late now for another xmas design anyway!
Here is a detail of the center. I put this on the scanner, but it is too big too get it all. The metallic shows up better here.
