Another New Start--Bargello

This is the beginning of my Contemporary Bargello piece from Needlepoint Now magazine. (You can order a reprint of this great series for $15 if you click on the above link then click again on the reprint pdf link) You might remember a previous post where I asked my readers to vote on which new project I should start? This one was NOT the winner ! :) But I had it all kitted up and didn't forget about it. Then I saw it actually started at the retreat I went to in May. It was lovely! (I mean it, Lori!)

This grey Congress cloth canvas has been recycled from a project I bought on ebay. FYI-all the projects on that previous post are either finished or WIP's now (except the Berlin woolwork-don't ask me why, but it is just not calling my name). As usual, please forgive my abysmal photography skills and ignore the needlepoint stand that you can see thru the canvas.
