Under Way with First Stitches!

The choice of thread for the initial work is Soie Ovale in Creme, a large-size spool from Thistle Threads. This thread is employed as a laid thread to fill the background around the lilies in the four corners of the circles. The laid work with flat silk requires a steady rhythm. The areas between the lilies, expected to be tedious, turn out to be enjoyable and are progressing well. Despite occasional challenges, the stitching is underway, bringing the project to life.
