This time no cross stitch project, but something completely different.
 First I sketched the design with pencil onto the fabric and then decided that the stitch work would be blue. ( one of my favorite colours)
Thanks to my stitch bible I made and discovered some nice and new stitches. I also used beads and sequins and small ribbons.
I use it as a table runner in the kitchen , but actually it is a cushion cover.
