I showed you the beginning of this coin purse earlier in the month.
I've made quite a bit of progress since then!
The idea was to use up the leftover floss from previous Stitch and Zip kits. Somewhere around here there's a sizable knot of black floss that I thought I'd use for this project. Do you think I can find it? Of course not. It's not in my embroidery basket or the tote with my stash of other embroidery threads. It doesn't seem to be in any of the logical places I would expect to find it in. I think I'm reduced to looking in the illogical places. I've made a start on the background anyway but the floss I began with was substandard. I had to go back over my stitches to get better coverage of the white canvas and even then it's peeking through more than I'd like. I hope I can unearth that knot of floss pretty soon so the rest of the background area will be more fun to stitch!
I also succumbed to the enticement of a new project, another coin or card case. Who could resist this face?
I'm not a fan of gray so I'm toying with the idea of a purple in the gray areas of the background.
I think it'll work just as well with the turquoise, aqua, and lime green as the gray - maybe better!
There's quite a group of us in this stitch along now, from Europe to Australia. You can see the wonderful array of work by clicking on their names below. I have a hard time, sometimes, getting around to see them all but I assure you it's worth the effort!
