I am really enjoying the Hilton-type stitches in this year’s Stitch of the Month programme, available free on the American Needlepoint Guild’s website. January’s task was to outline the diamonds, and then we fill in one diamond each month.
And I’m enjoying using colours I don’t usually go for – I’m more of a cool-colours person – greens, blues, purples and pinks. We don’t know what the finished work will look like, although we do know the colours that will be used each month. Keeping those in mind, I decided to stitch each month’s diamond in a different position to what the designer (Ro Pace) suggests. It remains to be seen how it will turn out!!
