Bargello seat covers - beginning


I have my 40 count linen on the frame and ready to attempt the bargello pattern from the book Miniature Needlepoint and Sewing Projects by Kathryn Falk.  I am using two strands of DMC floss.

This is roughly an hour's work so it does cover a good area rather quickly.  The linen works better than gauze for me, though it does take some concentration to start.  You have to be so careful with the count, but I can at least see the threads this time.  Once you get the pattern started, it seems to go faster as well.  I've stopped short on the right since I wanted to measure against the seat insert and didn't have it handy.  Bargello makes for a bulkier end fabric, so I want enough to cover the seat insert without having to tuck stitched portions underneath.

This is going to be gorgeous.  I was just thinking about bargello the other day and wondering if it could work in miniature.  Obviously, it does.  Absolutely lovely, as always.
