Surprise Project and Ebb Tide Update
I have been stitching. But I have also been in a funk. Below is a pilot project that I have just completed. Most of you know that I usually work on one project from start to finish but right now I have another pilot to begin, a class that I am suppose to be participating in and of course Ebb Tide is staring at me wanting to be finished. I really admire those of you who can work on more than one project and remain focused. I feel overwhelmed !
This pilot project is entitled Starburst. The original material list called for black canvas and an overdyed, 2 values of blue and gold metallic pallet. I don’t do black canvas (and this is actually congress cloth). It is an 8″ X 8″ design size and came with a lot of counting challenges with so much of the design is “in space”. The directions did not give any counting references for where to begin many of these areas. I made a strong suggestion for some additions to the directions. Waterlillies is the overdye and I chose two values of pink and a magenta metallic. This is not a beginner project unless one really has a knack of counting correctly the first time.
Ebb Tide Update:
You can see that I have made some progress in the corners. You might also notice that one of the corners is not finished. I have a counting error somewhere in this corner….:( I was having a problem determining the error so I put it away while I did the pilot project. Now I am ready to try again. I would like to get Ebb Tide finished before I begin on another pilot. I am so close …….
