entirety before moving on to the next one. I think this is making it both easier and more fun for me instead of breaking the rug into top and bottom. I think I would get confused if I stitched everything from the middle upwards first then do the middle downwards after. When stitching it around the circle, I can also easily remind myself to turn the stitches the opposite way for design elements in opposite corners. I have never turned so many stitches in a stitching project before, and I think it is working out well because I am trying to keep the lines going as a line rather than looking like a "railroad track". Since I know words can sometimes not convey what I am trying to say, here is a photo depicting what I mean:
Since I am stitching this in Petit point, this really shows up when stitching lines. It would not make a difference if stitching the pattern in Cross Stitch or French Knots. Most of the time, I don't need to turn my stitches and many people never turn them (it is not usual to turn them), but I felt the rug would look better if I did.
I have decided that since it is Boxing Day and all of my company has now left, I am going to give myself a stitching day. I am eagerly looking forward to seeing more of the rug take shape!
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.
