The first class I took at seminar was Serengeti, a 4-day class with Pamela Harding. The project for this class is on "Spice" Congress cloth and uses a variety of threads and stitches. Pamela has very kindly given me permission to post my progress.
I haven't worked on Congress cloth for a very long time and it isn't quite as hard as I remembered LOL!
To the right you can see a scan of the cover of the instructions for Serengeti.
I have changed out 4 of the threads/colors. There was a pinkish #8 Kreinik, which I changed to a copper in the same value. There was a Tiara which has been changed to a #12 Kreinik. I changed the sort of violet Splendor to a dark rust Splendor. There is also a Silk Lame Braid that I think will be replaced with a Kreinik.
Below is a photo of my progress to date. I have been working on this piece quite a bit since returning from seminar. Most of the sections that we started in class have been completed, getting rid of all the "spaghetti", and now I am working the blocks "in order". The first row across the top is almost finished.
