Last post, I said I was worried that the star was too dark on this project but would leave it alone and see how the next section worked. Well I feel better about it now.
I thought using 2 plies of floss in the star instead of perle #12 was too heavy, so when I did the crescents I only used one ply of floss. It looks better, more delicate. The rest of the area was filled in with 4-way stitching. The areas next to the star points were done with 1 ply of DMC Satin Floss. The areas around the outside of the star was done with 1 ply of floss. The colors all look more balanced now. But there is a long way to go on this.
Liz Morrow (don’t forget to check out her version today too) and I both will not have time to work on this any more this week, so it will be several weeks before we have the next section completed. As this project grows, it takes longer to complete a step. So this will be back in early October.
