While I was unable to join the group stitching this month since we decided to spend the weekend at the lake, I did get to spend the day stitching due to the extreme cold which kept us inside. And I actually finished this month’s stitching today – 2 months in a row is a record for me!
I was grateful that Linda had shared her progress as I was confused about the compensation on his month’s sections. The picture with the directions seemed to conflict with the wording about not crossing the lines for the section. It looks like Linda did what I did following the words rather than the picture.
I was surprised when I started stitching that last month’s and this month’s blues area more different than I realized when picking the threads. I’ve done enough playing with colors and have decided to stick with my latest choices! I did decide to go with my darker blue Kreinik even though Susan’s was a lighter one in hopes of blending better with section one. I would have liked some suggestions from Susan on picking colors as part of the SOTM info.
This is why I love stitching as a group. All these decisions can be done via group-think versus me on my own!
Here’s my progress for this month.
Month two looks great, Diane! I like your dark Kreinik with the thread for the cross stitch. It does tie it to the center block very well. I love the way this piece is developing each month and we are only in month two!
Looks great. I used a darker kreinik as well.
