Things are moving along now – after a week of working on the large, white band in the middle. I kept changing threads, then colors, and then stitches until I finally got it to a place where I really liked it! Whew!!
I need to finish the last motif band at the top with various shades of blue. Then I can add the name and the space around it. I hope I can get it done next weekend.
I am using a lot of different threads, hoping to use up some partial skeins and cards of threads from my stash. So far I’m been able to finish off some Neon Rays, a skein of Vineyard silk, Sparkle Rays and lots of cards of threads are now partial skeins too. I’ll finish off several spools of Kreinik as I stitch the area around the name. It’s been challenging and a lot of fun. The bottom 3 bands are from my first rug – Blue Rug. The top 3 bands are from the Medallion Rug. They sure look different here.
