A post on behalf of Tatyana

I've been working on Dorothy a lot, but bargello isn't really the fastest stitch and not my favourite since lately!))

Anyway, I'm half way through this piece. Can't wait to start flowers!

Your stitching is perfect, you are a very gifted needleworker.

Thank you for sharing your progess, it is so nice to see the close up of the bargello panel.

I love the way the bargello looks in your close up photo.
I find it a very relaxing stitch to work on.

Thank you ladies for the support! After all your inspiring comments I'm almost ready to go back to it))

ooo I'm green with envy. I'm waiting for this kit to arrive in the mail.The bargello section is stunning. Well done with not moving down to the flowers... I would have bargained with myself: 1 row of bargello and 1 thread length of the flowers...

Your stitches are beautiful! I love the way you photographed it. This chart is on my to do list.

Beautiful stitching. Keep up the good work.

Beautiful work! I'm on the wide band above the flame stitch. I love Bargello once the first row is stitched, that's a pain in the rear to do. The first time I saw this sampler I immediately ordered her in silk. I'm looking forward to the bottom with all of the flowers. Keep up the lovely work.

It is beautiful, Tatyana. Despite your dislike for it, your bargello looks wonderful.

Thank you all for encouraging me to stitch the bargello! It is very helpful.
Lisa, if I move to flowers I won't be ablle to make myself return to bargello. So, no flowers until it's over!!
Bargello always look stunning! But I wish someone else couks stitch it for me)))
