Background Finished

June 17, 2011

I am on the downhill side now……you know the feeling, almost finished and already thinking about what’s next 🙂

The background took four days, several hours each day.  That wonderful kind of stitching where the pattern establishes itself and you can just stitch.  All the background is done in floss. I used Anchor, all six strands, laid.  The combination of the Hungarian Stitch and bargello gives great texture.  The Hungarian is in the upper and lower corners with the bargello pattern in the upper and lower middle.

Now I must get out the slippery Neon Rays and fill in the diamonds on the left side.  It looks much richer for real than it does in the photos.
