Say Finished!

Contemporary Bargello
Needlepoint Now
Susan Hulmes
Light grey Congress cloth
Called-for threads-DMC cotton floss and Caron Waterlilies

Isn't it fantastic? I am SO pleased with the results on this project! A big hello and thanks to Edie for welcoming me to her home for a "stitcher's weekend"! I had a wonderful time and the result is above--a finished bargello piece. Be sure to click on the pic so you can see it in more detail.

So, now the question is --how to finish this? Hmmm...feel free to make some suggestions below!

As I mentioned before, I have a whole new respect for DMC cotton floss-and it has turned my thoughts to Genny Morrow's Nova project. That is a DMC floss extravaganza! (OK-I'll wait and include it in my next poll of what should I start next :)

I had one other very small finish and a new project start--but more about that tomorrow. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend-I certainly did! Thanks again, Edie!

Congratulations! It's gorgeous.
You're probably sick of hearing this, but the colours are stunning!

Beautiful! That went very quickly.... from where I am sitting anyway. Love the Nova project too.

Yeah! The Bargello piece is beautiful. I did Nova several years ago. It is a great piece. It took me three years but I am not the fastest stitcher on the block. Nova is all cotton floss so it is reasonable to kit. If you do start Nova, the directions say draw the grid. You can count 12x12 so no need to draw.

It is so beautiful!! Wonderful job! I would so frame this one. It's too pretty to not go up on the wall.
