Stitch For Syria by Mattsma Stitch For Syria by Mattsma
My tiny contribution for Concern Worldwide.

The one on the left is stitched with Gloriana #112 Harvest Grape 12 strand silk.  I used four strands for the center outwards for the flowers and two strands for the four hearts.

The one on the right is stitched using Caron Wildflowers #145 Carnival.  Both were stitched using on 36 ct opalescent white evenweave. 

The pattern is free, the pretty little stitch up gets added to a wall hanging in the center where the women gather to put needle and thread to fabric.  

You can go here --> www.concern.net/en/stitch-syri… to sign up and have the pattern, directions and form to mail yours in.  There is also a section you can go to donate.

This is a wonderful and quick stitch up, and kind of falls in with the Neglected Floss SAL as I had a piece of this pretty fabric left over and of course, the Caron floss was just waiting for something fun to happen :D  Remember, this is actually for a cause...a REALLY, REALLY wonderful cause Syria flag

They both look great! and so different from each other, it's really a good way to showcase what variegated thread can do to an embroidery.

Now on to complete my second one so I can show what mine look like :)

Working on it! My sore arm has not been helping.. and I keep on getting side tracked by other things hehe. It's not mine indeed, but it IS mrXstitch's own design which is just as good :D

Thank you!  I only have one kind of the Caron, and this is it.  And one kind of Gloriana, and this is it ha ha.  It was about time I did something with them!  They are both a little pricey which is why I only have one of each.  :forget-me-not: - NaNoEmo 06
