Orchid Lady, Finished

Heather is the key overdyed thread in my kit from Ann-Marie Anderson-Mayes in Australia for Orchid Lady by Mary Knapp on black Congress Cloth. The others at ANG Main Line Stitchers are stitching Anne-Marie’s design, Celestial Twist, with her threads.

The 4 center Rhodes used 4 strands from the overdyed skein with the away knot placed the same distance from the starting hole. Since I rotated the canvas as I stitched, the green fell in the center long stitches in a circular position.

An Amadeus that share the center holes can be tricky on the second side unless you hold your working thread off to the side so you can see the holes for you to insert needle into and then pull the thread taut. A huge help especially on black Congress Cloth! I decided to make these and the outer bargello border yellow.

There is plenty of threads for the next piece.
