A Bargello Start

I actually finished Camelot this week (yay! post soon) and so was able to start another project. This one is Bargello Medley Bag from The Gift of Stitching issue 35. I bought the kit and the colors look much better than in the pictures in the magazine, even though those look really nice. It's my first time using Tentakulum silks. My only problems so far are with the directions. It's easy to tell that the designer isn't used to putting together bargello designs. She has the whole area colored, which makes it hard to see the actual pattern you're supposed to stitch. Luckily, I've done bargello before. If I hadn't, I probably would have given up. Anyway, I'm really happy to have a new start and I hope this one goes well.
