MY WAY continues – this is Square “C”. I introduced this project on Monday of this week for any of you who missed it. MY WAY is a counted canvas pattern created by Carolyn Mitchell.
As I mentioned yesterday, I started in the center of the project stitching the background basketweave in a dark value of green. This is surrounded by two walneto stitches. Those walneto stitches proved very challenging, they were a ……… to stitch if you know what I mean! I stitched them THREE times, partly because I didn’t know what I was doing (sigh) then again because my choice of colours did not show up the small walneto. In retrospect I likely should have used a dark value purple for the small walneto so it would show up better below the green 1/16″ ribbon BUT now I know!
Colour #8, my overdye is repeated several times in this square. I originally stitched the Gobelin areas with lighter values as I was reluctant to use the darker value purple feeling that perhaps it was a bit too dark. I ended up going with the darker purple and am pleased with the results as it acts as a “frame”. Another one tomorrow….
