Ringing in the New Year


I've been working on Karen Anthony's "Ringing in the New Year" which she presented through ANGs CyberChapter during the January meeting. I decided to stitch it on Red canvas, since I had some, and use just red & silver metallics. I put in more "fireworks" than Karen did! I wanted a little more "solid" look, so I am filling in the background with a light coverage version of the Pavillion stitch, using just one strand of Needle Necessities overdyed floss. It's looking OK so far.

NCPat: Beads huh? Maybe! I'll have to think about that.... We'll see after everything else is finished!
