Reaching for Faith – Variegated Threads

I chose variegated cotton thread to stitch the flames.   Use the standard needlepoint stitch, basket weave, with variegated threads, and you end up with diagonal stripes.  That works fine for some of the portions of the flames.

Prayer: Father, help me bring together design and stitching techniques to make this project inspiring.
