My rug Progresses
Hot off the press! Here is my most current photo, taken this morning. I feel I am finally making significant progress now that I have both outer borders laid down correctly.
I have been having some difficulty counting the 48 count gauze correctly and have decided my glasses were to blame. Currently, I use my prescription readers along with a pair of cheater glasses on top. It helps but isn't perfect as I can't seem to get the correct magnification of cheaters to complement my readers. I went to my Optometrist last week and took my petitpoint in with me. I asked him to prescribe a second pair of bifocals with the exact magnification I needed to work on my petitpoint more comfortably. He obliged and I now have both pairs of glasses on order. I specifically wanted bifocals because I like to look up from my work and watch TV in the evenings. I am looking forward to seeing if these help my issues.
My goal over the next week or so is to get the two outer borders completed so that I can begin work on the inner two borders. Once I get all of the various whites, blues and yellows finished on the red border, I will be able to fill in background without having to study the pattern so intently. I always love this step as it gives me a bit of a break from intense counting before starting the next element of a rug.
Now to go and have more fun stitching! Stay safe everyone. 🙂

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.
