Shimmering Cheryl is a winsome Christmas angel, a confection of shiny, matte, and metallic threads stitched all in beautiful winter white. The student chooses pink, blue or white congress cloth for the background fabric. This piece was designed to introduce the student to some of the newer threads available. The stitcher will learn the proper use of Designers’ Dream, Flair, Splendor, Kreinik Flat Braid, and the new Petite Beads, plus polishing her skills with Kreinik #8 braid and everyone’s nemesis, Marlitt. Interesting and unusual stitches are employed to depict this vision of feminine loveliness, but the emphasis is on the unusual threads. This piece works up quickly and may be finished as an ornament or may be framed.
Stitches Include: Flower Stitch, Twill, Stem-Outline, Straight Stitch, Whipped Back Stitch, Gobelin, Scallop Shell, Eyelets with Pearls, Bullions, Flower Stitch with Beads.
