In case you hadn’t noticed, Bargello is back in a big way. You can see it everywhere. Domino magazine showed it last spring on a couch in a hip apartment. Jonathan Adler’s Bargello pillows were named to Real Simple’s list of must haves.
Iona Dettelbach’s Bargello book is packed with fantastic ideas and June McKnight has a new Bargello book out.
To keep you inspired while I’m at TNNA, I wanted to share with you my latest project, which is in Bargello Revisited (out June 2008). It’s a Bargello checkbook cover. It uses a classic Hungarianpoint pattern in neutral colors with a pop of red.
I stitched it in wool, so it will really wear.
But what suprises me most is how fast it was to stitch. I worked on it a little but, but last week I was able to finish stitching it in just a few hours.
By using the Lee Needle Arts leather checkbook, it got done almost before I knew it and is now ready to go to work.
And, even better, it’s the first of my President’s Challenge pieces to get done!
