Last week I started work on a new Bargello design. It is called Cymbidium and is from Bargello Magic, a great book of Bargello designs and ideas by Pauline Fischer and Anabel Lasker. The Cymbidium is basically four pomegranate motifs combined to make a clover leaf pattern. I plan to use violet and lavender as the predominant colour scheme, when I come to fill in the flowers. Below is the partly formed outline of the cymbidium, which I have stitched in pearl grey. Hope it stands out when I add the colours.
