At our monthly meeting of Needlecraft Guild, the class was Bargello work.  We could buy kits with canvas and thread to make a spectacle case. 


Front View

Initially I was not impressed with the colours in my kit but now that it is finished I really like the way they go together.


Back View


Side View

Enjoyed doing this as once you have done the first row, the rest are easy to do and it works up quite fast and the colours blend nicely.

I lined the case with a scrap of flannelette left over from making my daughter pyjamas years ago.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

This is so lovely! I haven't heard of this style before. I want to look for a kit of my own. I really like how the colors look blended.

Thanks. It was new to me too but definitely not too hard once I got started. I think I could also use it to make a lovely background for conventional needlepoint.
