Gentle Friends, I finished up Fragments Friday evening and here's a snap....
February 20 - March 17, 2017
"Fragments in Time - Sampler Motifs" by Summer House Stitche Workes
36ct Barn Owl called for GAST
Although I used the called for GAST floss I did change up some of the charted areas for certain colours and I stitched the little bird in the M N Square in red. It was a fun piece and a pretty quick stitch. I did make a pretty major counting mistake early on but made do and shifted up the motifs as I went along.
Here is the small start on my next piece.... "Anniversaries of the Heart" by BBD, I have pulled all the called for GAST and WDW floss, but have already made a major colour change in the first square. This is a mostly white square and I stitched up the vine part in the white to start but it disappeared into the linen and looked weak. I then looked around at some completed pieces on the Internet and found one that had a darker stitched vine which gave some visual structure to this corner.... so I went with a darker vine. This will be a great piece to work on during the coming months.
That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again!!
