Tangerine Twist

Thanks Miriam for sending me a progress picture of Needle Delights Tangerine Twist. Lots of interest lately in the shop with charted work. I really like the designs of Needle Delights; excellent charts, great sense of color and plenty of stitches. Compared to other charted work I find there are more stitches than meets the eye. Piece below was done using waterlillies and not watercolours as per the chart. Customer likes how laying stranded silk looks in comparison to the softer look of watercolours. I have to agree that I like the look better too but respect the designer charting for watercolours as to not intimidate a less skilled needleworker not to mention the lower price overall. Word of caution not all watercolours are available in waterlillies, for this piece there was only one pale yellow that we needed to substitute
