Marie Anne’s Puzzle 7/19
The final border is coming along. It is taking more time than I expected as I have to hide threads to keep them from showing through the open canvas. I stitched and frogged the first run (the dark green) FOUR times befor I got the count right…… I had trouble getting the right starting point. I guess I had several senior moments 🙂 When I finally got going I counted very carefully as I was getting tired of “frogging”. When I have to start in no man’s land I think I try too hard.
I had intended to use the Watercolors where the pink is but the pattern was to delicate for the thick watercolors. Instead I brought the pink from the center out to the edge and used the Watercolors in a small area between the ray stitch flowers. I did not use any metallic as the original instructions called for as I did not have the right color in my stash.
I will press on and hope to have this finished this week.
