Spring Delights Update
I keep making progress on Spring Delights. I spent two days doing tent in Area 16. This is a 40 thread by 40 thread square…….that’s 1600 tent stitches ! The design was then stitched on top of the tent with one strand of a contrasting thread. My eyes really got tired trying to count the tent stitches for the design. It turned out good…. but it was a lot of work for one square.
Area 15 was time consuming also. Two layers of stitches and then BEADS. I don’t think I have ever done as many beads in one project as I have on this one. And there are still more to do.
Now for the big problem……See the two pink beaded hearts in Area 2, they all have to come out. When I stitched the first heart in class I miscounted the up/down position by one thread. To compound the problem I stitched the second heart keying off the first heart 🙂 I keep looking at it and dreading all the time it will take to unbead. If any of you have any suggestions on how to remove the beads, I would appreciate your suggestions. I can’t see any way except one bead at a time. I will have to reuse the beads so I can’t lose too many.
