Queen of the Needle

Here's the progress I've made this week on Queen of the Needle. It's a fun stitch, with some specialty stitches. The only thing I've changed (so far) is that the pattern called for Perle Cotton for some of the white, but I didn't like trying to stitch with it (mostly struggled with even just threading the needle! LOL). The roses (the pink flowers) are a funny little stitch, and the hearts are stitchined with kind of a satin stitch. The white row under the hearts is a "fan" stitch. In between the two sets of pansies there is a charm that gets attached, and there are also some other beads to attach. Obviously, I'll leave all of those for last.

Thanks for checking it out!

Looks good Kathy. I love the colors in that. Pink and purple are two of my faves. I have Tree of Stitches in progress, and it uses a lot of specialty stitches too. I'm loving using the different types of stitches. I hope you're enjoying them too.

It looks so pretty. I have that in my stash so I really must get to it sooner rather than later.

Looks fabulous! I did this one a few years ago as a SAL with Rene La Frog.
