This week's progress
This week I wanted to show you the progress I have made on the Ocean Runner and how I am moving the project down the frame as I finish each section.
Last night, I finally reached the top of the frame (for the most part) and decided to move the fabric down in order to work the next section. This photo shows how it looks now that I have moved it down. On the reverse side, I have not put my thumbtacks all the way across the bottom, only in the extreme corners and the center where there is no stitching. This is so that the tacks do not pull the stitching out of shape or make a hole in the stitching. You may see that there are three holes in the fabric near the top of the frame. These are just areas where the strands of fabric were pulled out of shape but is not torn. I simply move the strands back into place and the hole virtually disappears. There are three other holes near the needle that I have moved the strands around and they are almost gone. Once I stitch over them, you won't be able to see them anymore.
I am enjoying how quickly this project is stitching up as it doesn't take long to see more pattern emerge or to fill it in. Most likely, I will continue with this one for a while before I return to my Sonja rug.

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.
