Night Flight Update

October 27, 2014

Night Flight 10-27 CU

I can hardly stay away from this project. I finish one area and immediately want to start the next area.

Area 7 (behind the moon) is done in Watercolors #17 Blue Lavender. The stitch is Reverse Giant Moorish. I found getting the pattern started a little confusing. After a little reverse work I had it figured out. Am I the only one who constantly counts in my head once I get a pattern’s stitch sequence down pat? I find that when doing this it makes compensation so much easier. I count without really thinking about it until I need to compensate.

Area 8 is the very small area to the bottom right of the moon. It is done in Watercolors #083 Pine Forest. It was such a small area done in mosaic that it took no time at all.

Area 9 is the area just below the moon. It is done in Watercolors #121 Evergreen. The stitch guide says it is a Diagonal L stitch. I don’t recognize the stitch name but had no trouble following the hand drawn stitch. Remember this pattern is from 1997 before we had wonderful computer generated stitch drawings πŸ™‚

    This is coming along beautifully! I did this pattern a few years ago, and had to substitute some of the fibers. It looks FANTASTIC when finished and framed! Have you seen the companion “desert” pattern?

    The Companion piece is called Day Flight and I hope to find a copy to buy.

    This is absolutely gorgeous! I’d seen this piece before (thumbnail) and frankly not too interested. See your progressive work, I now want to do it too! As aleays, you do exquisite work and it’s such a treat that you share it with us.

    Stitch Lady, I have the pattern for a companion piece called “Desert Sunset” that I would be happy to mail to you, no charge. I’ve had the pattern for years, and will never get to stitch it. I love your blog — consider this a thank you gift. Email me at BarbiJKM (at) with your mailing address and I’ll send it out!
