Did this piece through a cyber class with Shining Needle Society. It is a charted design by Lisa Willis. At first I was worried about working on black canvas but in all honesty had no problems. However I now have to add Kreinik Ombre to a list of love hate threads. It was a wonderful piece to do for relaxation as for the most part there was minimal laying of threads. and it also gave me a chance to try Snipits a thread I'd previously never heard of. As a lover of overdyes in both needlework and knitting not a chance to be missed.
