I love that Jane in Chilly Hollow has been talking about scale in backgrounds on her blog. And I just adore the Noh mask she’s blog stitching.
She picked a great background, from Needlepoint Now. When I was reading about it, I was hoping she’d show us how to do it, because I LOVE it!
And she did, in an outstanding post. Learn how to do Alternating Cashmere Pairs with wonderful close-up pictures of every step of the process, done with thin threads on black plastic canvas so the stitches are so easy to see.
I’m sitting here thinking of a piece where I can use it.
