As we decided to come up to the lake this weekend, i was able to get this month’s SOTM directions from Linda to work on remotely at the same time as our regular SOTM. Since we had rain off and on Saturday, i was able to do the stitching in between outside chores and the rain. I was amazed how quickly it went and that i was able to finish all the sections on Saturday. I love being able to complete the work on this project within a few days, see the progress, put it away for the month, and work on all my other projects!
While starting on the herringbone, i really missed being with the group to figure out what went where! In addition to the camraderie and discussions, getting each other’s thoughts and ideas on the same project is the real benefit of our SOTM group.
Working with the original colorway, i changed the overdye and threads to pick up more yellow/gold and merlot/burgundy instead of the teal and purple pop colors, while keeping the original autumn colors as the base. I kept all the main threads the same and continued with the black canvas and changed the pop color threads but kept the same type of thread. It is interesting to compare it to those doing the original colorway since it is so similar yet different. Here’s my progress through yesterday.
