I finished the north section part 2 of Caribbean today (except for one pesky silk that I’m missing and a tiny bit of back stitching that the missing silk held up).
Cheryl did the conversion on all the NPI & DMC on Caribbean to Eterna silks for me. Thank you again Cheryl! And that “ice blue” NPI 493 that converted to a greenish in Eternas worked out just fine. It matches up wonderfully with the blues and greens in Waterlilies Bermuda Reef.
Love these angle shots where the relief of the beads and crystals show.
Lookies! Jessica stitches (the ones with the gold beads in the middle) and pulled eyelets. Hey Melissa C, remember that trick you learned at Celebrations and showed me for the eyelets? I used it here and it worked like a dream.
The most perfect Rhodes stitches EVAR. I am wicked proud of these. 3 strands of Eterna Silk all laid perfectly down. I will not discuss how long it took me to do all of these…
p.s. The tip for the eyelets. Stitch the top half of all the eyelets in the row and then travel back stitching the bottom half. Easy peasy and I felt like an idiot for not figuring that out on my own.
