First Coaster Stitched

Today was our second class and I will paint again tomorrow. While I ponder what I want to stitch, I finished stitching the first coaster. I used Silk & Ivory (colors: 213 banana, 01 natural, 29 guacamole, 150 peony, 198, ahoy!, 36 admiral blue).

And, I finished graphing the second coaster on Excel to see how it would turn out. If this were a design that I wanted to paint again, I’d use this version (rather than my colored pencil version). And, it stores easily on my computer. I’ll stitch this one too.

Like the design. You’ve mastered the design process in Excel–kudos!

Yeah, I think if this way as a cross stitch diagram (easy in Excel). The stitches diagrammed for needlepoint stitches are way more time consuming and tedious. But, I am glad Excel works for both.
