Amadeus Stitch

I was getting ready to teach this to my guild and worked the Amadeus stitch with the white perle cotton.  It looks ok but I thought I would try the light blue floss next.  Ok, but not great.  I decided the white floss with the blending thread was the best choice.  You can't see it in my photo, but it has a nice sparkle.  I think people are afraid to change colors in pieces because they may have to rip.  But if you don't  try something new, how will you learn?

what a fascinating stitch! It reminds me of the string art that I used to do a kid. I love the white... definitely stands out better than the light blue but having said that... the blue does look lovely as well against that fabric! :o)
