This was my starting point for my weekend stitching session.
I am really very pleased with the progress I have made this weekend on this project from Papillon Creations which will travel the world in stitches. I am stitching it on 28ct Bone Jobelan. The first part of the project concentrates on stitches from England and Scotland and the speciality stitches used are Norwich Stitch, Berwick stitch (although I did back stitching here as could not get it to look right), Lindisfarne stitch (which I think looks really effective, it is the main stich on the right heart) and Scotch stitch. I also managed to start the border work for part 2.
For anyone who is interested the colours I am using are as follows: -
The greens - DMC 500, 502 and 504
Floral Colour 1 DMC Color Variation 4124 Bonfire
Floral Colour 2 Carrie's Creations Sorbet

Metallic thread is Rainbow Gallery Petite Treasure Braid PB01

I am using DMC 543 to attach beads as this is fairly close to the fabric colour. Below is a photo of the materials used
