Adding Gobelin Stitch to my cross stitch project
The designers give you 4 different colorways, but I threw caution to the winds and used a little bit of all my favorite colors.
I also used gobelin stitch to replace the little cross stitch borders in the sampler. Gobelin stitch here is really just a slanted straight stitch. It's a basic needlepoint stitch that I think is perfect in this design, as it really keeps the tulips front and center.
Mixing up cross stitching with needlepoint and pulled thread stitches is always fun to do.
