it in one go. As there isn't a lot of the palest peach, I also wait until I have a few flowers to fill in with that color before using it. This has helped me tremendously and I am making less errors now.
Tip* Another thing of note with this rug is that although it is easier to stitch the darker colors first, it is not the best way to do it. Dark colors show through the light colors if the light color is stitched over carried threads of darker colors. If you must stitch with a darker color first, make sure that no thread is carried across an empty space that will be filled in with a light color. It will take a bit more thread but always run the thread back through already stitched areas of darker color on the back before proceeding to a new area. If you have to cross an open area, park the thread (leave attached to your work and thread it into some holes away from the area you are working - this can be seen at the top of the photo above) then stitch the lighter color before picking up the thread again and crossing the area to get to the new dark area.
I am greatly looking forward to finishing the border and beginning the middle. Hopefully by next week...
My name is Yvette, and I will be writing this blog to tell you about the creative process that has gone into the creation of my Petitpoint patterns along with showing the stitching I have done of some of the rugs.
