WordPress just came out with this new template and I love the rust and teal colors. So I tried it out last night. The only thing I had to change was the background color, which was black. The background now looks like Aida cloth and I like the color so much better than black. Hope it wasn’t too big a shock when you arrived here today.
With Anatolia completed, I’m now working on Turquoise Dreams. I’d like to finish it this coming week.
I’ve started the next section which surrounds the center Walnetto stitch. I used 3 plies of thread for all of the boxes. I started with DMC Satin Floss # S976 and made 6 small boxes. The next layer is DMC Floss # 3809, the darkest shade of turquoise. The 3rd layer is DMC Satin Floss # S676 and the last layer is DMC Floss # 597. With two corners completed, I decided that the lighter shade of Satin Floss is just too light and fades away. Do you agree? I think I should pull that out and do the 3rd layer in a light gold color. The light gold would also look better with the overdye I used for the Walnetto.
