Bargello - 3.5 hours, Gazelle rug - 12.75 hours

by brae  

It's time for the monthly needlework update.  This is 3.5 hours of stitching time on the bargello (40 count, two strands DMC floss).  Not too much more for one complete bench cover.  I could in theory remove the stitching to make sure it works before doing the other, but I would have to patch the linen with fabric and reframe it.  Considering the minimal amount of time investment, I will likely just stitch both and hope for the best.  I have an idea in mind if it's slightly too small, but I don't think it will be.  I am stitching an area with an 1/8" border around the seat insert.

I've also done a little more work on the Gazelle rug (32 count cross-stitch on Jobelan).  This is 12.75 hours of work.  :]

I cannot get over the colors on those bench covers. Just gorgeous the way you’ve gotten that ombre effect.

The gazelle rug is looking really good.

You make it look so easy Brae. I can’t even imagine being able to follow the pattern let alone getting the stitches to look so fine :0)

Those benches are going to be spectacular. And the gazelle rug, I can tell, is going to be a favourite. :)

Such beautiful stitching. A lot of hours involved yes, but so worth it.
