Last time I shared a progress photo on a group on Facebook a lady commented that she was amazed at the amount if blank space that I was missing, in between sections / colours. Admittedly it made me sit back and wonder if I am doing it wrong? I ended up moving onto other projects and neglecting this one as I felt somehow that my technique was lacking?
It spoilt it for me... But you live and learn and I have returned to it and am making progress. I really want to finish this as my husband and children gave it to me as a gift for Mothers day in 2009? I think I am the slowest stitcher on earth but I guess it is a case of if you do not invest time into stitching then you do not see results. I spent all afternoon working on this today and I can see the results :) If you look at both photos you can see an amazing amount of difference. I am going to start trying to add at least one thread of a colour prior to bed each night as I have finally purchased a magnifying lamp and new glasses for myself - its amazing what being able to actually see the holes can do for stitching ability :)
I hope that you are all having a wonderful crafty of fun weekend, hugs chars x
