At long last, after many, many re-starts of areas, my outer two borders are finally complete! This is a celebration day for me. 🙂 There is one tiny spot that isn't completed in the wide part of the border (can you see it?). Hint: it is in the wider part of the left border. I will fill that in when I am working with that color doing the next border rather than fill it in now.
After I have finished a section, I go over it visually to see if I have missed any single stitches and fill them in. I found a couple of black stitches I had missed and a few whites which I fixed. The last section I had missed consisted of several stitches that I knew I could see easily so I decided to wait until I was once again working with that color.
Now I am working on the next border, as you can see on the bottom and right side, and it will be the same elements as are in the outer border. I began it last night and still found I was having difficulty counting it out properly. However, this time, unlike last time, I caught the mistakes early since I had the wide border to use as a positioning reference.
Hopefully, by next week I can have the next two borders either done or well on their way to being done. Then I can start on the fun center. There are less black stitches in the center so I hope it will go quicker. Despite my new glasses (which are working wonderfully) I find it very difficult to see the individual stitches when I am looking at the black ones, whereas I can see every single individual stitch in any of the other colors. Not sure if this is just me or if others have this difficulty. For me, it makes stitching this quite a challenge, but a welcome one since it gives me such a sense of accomplishment when I complete an area correctly!
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.
