Since I wasn’t able to make it on Saturday, I thought I’d post about my progress. I wasn’t able to do section 4 because I don’t have one of the threads yet, but I’ve finished the rest. I made a little change in section 5 — after stitching it according to the instructions, I decided that there was too much of the canvas color showing, so I added horizontal laid stitches in the Kreinik, tucking them under the already-stitched crosses. I’m glad I did — it looks better with less canvas showing, and the increased amount of orange actually tones down the turquoise of the crosses. You can’t tell that in the photo, but in person the color really did change.
Hi Everyone —
We had quite a turn-out for a dreary February day. It is a testament to how excited all of us are to be doing Lorene Salt’s “Kaleidoscope”. Unfortunately, I was a little slow in getting my camera out and a number of folks left before I could snap a photo. I hope they will post individually to this blog!
Here are a few of the Kaleidoscopes followed by the close-up detail of today’s stitching. Many of us can now put this piece away until March — it is so exciting to be able to complete the month’s stitching in one long afternoon!
