Updated June 17, 2020. I need a break so today and Saturday you’ll find updated reposts of great resources on the Internet.
Su at TangleCrafts has done it again with a witty (there’s no other word for it) four-way Bargello design, Bobbin Along. Don’t you just love it!
Su has a great explanation of her thinking about this piece, but I wanted to point out a couple of things. I love the way she handles the spools of thread, they look so realistic. The wooden tops and bottoms are a perfect color.
I also really like the way the Whipped Backstitch thread, snakes around the piece. It provides a real focal point for the design. The Bargello becomes a wonderfully complex background for it.
If you want to try your hand at using silk ribbons, consider using them for the “thread” here.
