Or Nue Star Lily Finished

Posting three times in as many days - that's certainly a record for me.

I finished Or Nué Star Lily last night.  I really like the way it turned out.  We used the "economy" style of laying the thread - coming up in the hole directly below the one that the thread went into.  My tension is not that even and the #16 braid was a little stiff to work with for this method, at least for me. So, I think I may try to either lay the metallic using a satin stitch so that it wraps around the back or lay it all on the top and couch at the end.  Sounds like a trip to the needlework store for some canvas!

    1. Thank you, Vicky. I enjoyed actually finishing a class piece!

  2. Looks great! I am so glad I did mine on white with 2 threads because I am facinated by how different yours looks on black with 3 threads. Obviously, the same piece but different overall appearance. Melita

    1. It is amazing how different they look. I've been referring my ANG Chapter to your site to see your piece. Thanks for pulling together this class!

    1. Thanks, Jess. It was a fun technique to learn and having a small piece that I could finish quickly is an added bonus.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. They help me stay motivated.
