Work In Progress Wednesday - March 4

Last Sunday I added Victorian step to my Phoenix. The thread is perle 8.
Yesterday I visited Amsterdam, a great excuse to shop at De Afstap. I bought new threads for my Phoenix: Appleton wool, DMC perle 5, Madeira silk and Dansk Blomstergarn.

  1. De Afstap must be a real 'candy shop'!
    Victorian step stitch gives such a nice background to the phoenix.

    1. Yes, De Afstap is a real 'candy shop'! It's a small shop, but there was lots to see. You can have a virtual look if you click the link in my post.

  2. Lovely effects in the stitching of the background. It is always difficult to choose threads. You have got a nice selection

    1. Thanks, Diane. I already had some nice threads, but it's better to have more variation!

    1. Dank je wel, Marjolein. Als je op de link Phoenix klikt in de eerste regel kun je zien hoe ik begonnen ben. Ik laat expres kleine stukjes zien, anders is de verrassing weg voor mijn dochter!
