I missed April because I had no progress to report, but put the pedal to the metal and finished This Heart of Mine for May. Learned a lot about using variegated/overdyed floss for the first time and about stitching a symmetrical design - first, you cannot use the loop method with variegated floss - learned that after putting in the first couple of dozen stitches! Second, even if a chart is both vertically and horizontally symmetric, you cannot keep turning it clockwise - yes, I ended up with large chunks of stitches "going the wrong way"! This is why I used cheap floss and linen for my first effort with both a variegated floss and a monochromatic design :-) I plan to continue my education by tackling either Pizzazz or Pot Luck next - need to dig through the fabric and floss stash first. See you in June....
Hi all It turns out that making a new start was harder than I imagined, when there are sooooo many gorgeous IC designs to choose from and I have half a dozen kitted up and ready to go. I opted for a smaller design this time as I am waiting in anticipation for next month's Gift Of Stitching mag and it's new IC design (which looks like it might be a companion to B&R) hmmmm....only a few days to go...
May - New Start
Hope you have a great month with lots of happy stitching : ) hugs Liz x x
I know I have been absent, I am very sorry but my mojo has been missing in action. But I have throughly enjoyed seeing all your wonderful progresses and finishes.
I look forward to seeing more wonderful stitching in the coming months.
I am updating the sidebar lists, please let me know if I have missed anyone.
