More Bargello With Floss

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Here are the three Bargello pieces I made before making the jump to yarn.  Can you see the theme?  Yep, I’m a huge coffee drinker, and I also work for a local tea company here in Ottawa; I have hot drinks on the brain!

They’re okay.  Not terrible, and I love the colours, shapes and patterns, but the coverage definitely isn’t amazing.  Check out the two closeup shots below to see what I mean:

You can definitely see more of the background than in the yarn Bargello pieces.  I used three strands of floss for all three projects.  Moral of the story?  Yarn looks nicer, but if you want to find out if you like working with wavy, repetitive patterns and funky colour schemes, pulling out your cross stitching supplies and giving it a go is a great way to discover a new stitching style!

  1. I love these! I tried out some needlepoint (I’ll be sharing it next week!) and the embroidery floss definitely leaves gaps. I want to experiment more and I’ll probably invest in some yarn, it seems worth it to have a better finished product.
    And that’s so awesome that you work for a tea company. I love tea, I’m borderline obsessed!
