I am in the middle of an Embroiderers Guild of America (EGA) online course called Geraniums by Merrilyn Hazelwood. It comes in three colorways. I chose mandarin.
It is on white 18 count mono canvas using some Gumnuts wool, DMC #5 pearl cotton variations and a solid. Yet to be used is some DMC floss. The design area is about 9”x9”.
I started late and I am still on lesson one of three and I think lesson three comes out March 3!
The wide border is done in rice stitch using the wool for the cross and a variegated for the crossing of the legs. This is how it looks partially done and there is quite a difference! I did follow the teachers suggestion and tried to get color blocks rather than doing the legs row by row.
The next photo is the completed rice stitch border. Now on to the rest of the border and lesson one will be complete!
