Another Retreat Project, Progress

This small piece will hopefully be done by the end of the week.  There is nother row of flowers all the way around & then another border.  It is quite a cheerful piece to work on, and doesn't tax one's brain too much!  I used a full 6 strands of floss for the purple outline & while that worked fine for the slanted (backstitched) lines, it seems too heavy for the Continental lines.  I think I'll cut that down to 4 strands for the next one.

That is so pretty. Not really my colours, but coming together so well that I really like it!

This is pleasant and cheerful, and not too complicated. I love the thread colors - personal preference. Using 4 ply instead of 6 does work much better on the "tent" stitches.

Thanks everyone. These aren't my colors either, but I do like it.

Joanie, I hadn't decided about releasing it for sale, but I guess I will.
