12 Days of Christmas Progress #1

Time goes by so quickly, I can't believe it has been a week since my last post. I have been working on a new bargello design, "12 Days of Christmas". The first row is complete all the way around, in bright red Neon Rays. It required very careful counting & double checking, as well as careful handling of that slippery thread!
I started the next 3 rows just to see how it would look. It's good, so I'll go back now & finish them. The greens are Silk & Ivory. The canvas is very dark green. The colors didn't come out very accurate & the Neon Rays is so shiny that it just looks blurry. I'll see if I can get a better picture next time.

Great start on this project! The colors look good on the dark green canvas. Can't wait to see how you do the center of the design. This will be fun to watch!

This is certainly interesting. I use YLI Ribbon Floss instead of Neon Rays, as it is so much easier to handle. It has the sheen, but isn't slippery and lies flatter. Please stitch faster, as I'm anxious to see progress.
