White Orchid

This past Sunday was the annual Stitcher's Retreat here in Las Vegas. I went last year for the first time, so was an "old hand" this year. It is just a fun day. About 30-40 stitchers having a lovely day stitching, chatting, lunching, show & tell, door prizes. All in all, a terrific time.

I started on my next Orchid, the white one, to work on at Retreat. The shading is quite subtle and won't show up too well till the background goes in so there will be some contrast. The canvas is Eggshell. I had planned to use a light pink canvas, but I didn't have a big enough piece. It is coming along well and goes fairly quickly considering it is all Basketweave.

It looks very pretty. A cousin and my stepsister both grow orchids so I am always looking for the perfect piece to stitch for them. Could you tell us a bit about this piece?

I'm already loving this color version! I think this will be the best one yet. Can't wait to see it completed.
