This design is called Trelis and is by The Workbasket. I am beginning to like designs of this nature lately. I see myself doing more of this in d future, although, once this is completed, I intend to start on the Nature's Alphabet, an Elizabeth's Design, which is supposedly another SAL with Ina, although Ina has started on hers last week.
I can't wait to get this done to see the overall effect. The original was done using GAST and a few other overdyeds. I am using D&T overdyeds for the vines, and DMC for the rest.
If U look closely, though dn't scrutinize, *wink*, I started with DMC for the vines, and continued with D&T when I finally found a colour that matches. If using DMC, it was to be a tweeding between DMC502 and DMC554. I made a mistake when I read the intructions (trust me to make such a silly mistake! duh! *wink*) and didn't do the tweeding. I wanted to do it halfway into the project, but abandoned it when it just didn't look right. So, finally, decided to combine DMC and D&T. I thinks it doesn't look too bad. In fact, I think it gives this piece more cahracter! Don't U think so? *wink*
