This week I started another 9 x 9 inch needlepoint sampler on 28 count Jobelan evenweave. I bought these 25 gram skeins of DMC perle 8 in brown and antique blue. I hope it’s enough to stitch 81 one inch squares on my sampler, these stitches are thread-eaters!
I started with Hungarian grounding.
This is brick filling, I found this stitch in Stitch Sampler by Lucinda Ganderton.
It’s great to see the difference with one or two colours. You can see my pink squares with the same stitches here.

This month’s Use MyTangle challenge at I am the diva is Athitzi. It’s completely new to me and reminds me of kantha embroidery. I combined Athitzi with Btl Joos, which was also new to me. The background of my ATC is watercolour paint.
