Comments: This is a cyberclass I have taken with Marianne. I just love doing bargello and this project is no exception. This is just such a beautiful design with lovely colors.

I remember that some of the threads were a bit slippery and had to be very careful with them and also used a laying tool, but the end result was well worth all the efforts necessary to get there. Stitching the flowers were so much fun and it adds those spots of colors so necessary to make this design come to life. That was a wonderful experience and Marianne was very helpful too.
