September 11, 2018--Just finished the stitching on this delightful CyberPointers project. The colors used came from an overdyed RG Mandarin Floss thread and would not normally have been my first choice--way out of the box for me. I'm going to call this "Canyon" Heart since the colors make me think of the way canyons look at different times of the day. It's interesting how the center color played out on the overdye, clumping the yellow in one place. Do you think of a sunrise or late afternoon sun? What do you see?

September 9, 2018--As a member of ANG's CyberPointers online chapter, I love stitching their meeting offerings whenever possible, and because I love bargello stitches, this month's project is a must do for me. The project called Florentine Heart is designed by Patricia Tector, and uses an overdyed thread from which 5 different thread colors are drawn, all taken from your own stash.
Years ago I received an RG Mandarin Floss M924 overdyed thread at an ANG NOVA chapter event as a table favor and have always wanted to use it somehow. This strandable bamboo floss, along with four matching DMC threads and an RG Splendor thread are perfect for the Florentine Heart--at least I think so as of this point in the project.
I have thus far completed the instructions for Day 1 and below is a photo of the heart outline along with my thread choices.
Now onto the instructions for Day 2.
