I am now a little over halfway done the rug and I love the way it is looking! I had quite a time doing the center medallion. I miscounted the position of the first bottom leaf and didn't notice until I was up to the center of the flower. Very frustrating that, even though I put the grid on, I had ignored it and made a mistake. I had to remove quite a bit of the center medallion and start again.
When starting it again, I chose to fill in the background rows up to the point where the leaf was to start and then I couldn't count it wrong. It worked much better that time. One thing I have found with any craft is that I am always learning. I try not to let any of my mistakes get me down because I learn from them.
Since this post is on Christmas Day, I want to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season, no matter what holiday you celebrate. I hope everyone has a wonderful, peaceful season with your loved ones, if able.
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.
