During these last 5 days, I have been filling in the border a bit and it is coming along quite nicely. My first photo was taken against a light background, as I generally do and then I realized I couldn't see all of the work I had done on filling in the white outlines. Therefore, I took the photo again on a dark background.
In filling in the borders, I alternate between doing easy no-count sections inside areas I have already outlined, and doing outlining where I have to pay attention more. I do this, firstly to make sure I am alert when doing the counted parts and, secondly to relieve boredom of filling in sections. This way I can get all of it done without getting too bored. (I tend to get bored if I do too much that is easy and like the challenge of creating new motifs in the pattern)
Hopefully by next week I will have more of the black filled in so that the borders will look more completed. I find it interesting that borders seem to take so long and it feels as if you haven't accomplished much and then all of a sudden they are done! I look forward to that day. 😉
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.
