Filed under: 4-way Bargello class at Rittenhouse Needlepoint, Melita's Other Completed Pieces
My grandmother used to say that there are no errors in needlepoint – there are just things that make each piece uniquely your own! Well, I got watching TV and by the time I discovered “it”, it was too late to unstitch. And, most people (non-stitchers) won’t notice. Bargello does require concentration. This is a good size for a coaster. And, I know who likes this color. So, ‘someone’ will have to wait a couple of months!

Taking a class in 1&1/2 hours isn’t a lot of time especially when it’s a 4-way bargello. But, Stephen at Rittenhouse Needlepoint made it work by designing a small enough piece to demonstrate the essentials. We had a variety of colors to select from – already bundled. The base row took the longest to stitch (& unstitch) requiring concentration. Turning the corner proves to be the next trickiest area. After a full day of work, I was very pleased with the instructions, materials, classmates, refreshments, & to get this much done during class:
After an evening of stitching, I still haven’t violated the miter!!
