Vintage Log Cabin

I have been on more of a reading kick than stitching, but I did manage to finish an Embroiderer's Guild of America (EGA) cyber course during the time allotted. It is called Vintage Log Cabin and is designed by Terry Dryden. The finished piece is six (6) inches square. 

I did not use all of the suggested fibers. I liked the overdye used, so I purchased it along with the other Treenway silks used for the project and then I filled in from my stash.

It called for Treenway Silk Montano Harmony Eden Valley (the overdye), which show up best in the scotch stitches in the left and bottom areas third from the center.

Also used are Treenway Silk Zen Shin in Cedar Rose, Tuscan Gold and Winter Sage (the darker green). These show best in the left and bottom areas next to the center.

I used very little of the Tuscan gold, but it did help me coordinate the other yellows needed. I have quite a bit of #8 perle cotton and floss so filling in from my stash was not a problem. The original colors were a pinker.

It is stitched on French Blue 18 Count Mono Canvas.

It was lots of fun and I am happy to have taken the class!

Next on my needlepoint frame it the American Needlepoint Guild (ANG) 2020 Stitch of the month. I am using totally different colors since going to a shop is not so easy right now and I have a good stash!

I am still working on Marie Antoni Sampler, just not as often as before.

Happy Stitching!!
