It feels like forever since I had real stitching progress to share here on the blog. I mentioned in the newsletter last week that I was recovering from feeling pretty darn crappy and as part of that I prescribed myself some stitching time daily. I have to say, stitching is good medicine.
I put a few hours in stitching My Token of Love by Rosewood Manor, a project that has been neglected for awhile. This was my morning project, I’d stitch for 30 minutes or so after everyone left for school each morning. A cup of hot coffee and whatever random cooking show was on TV…
(you can see previous progress on My Token of Love here)
Then my weekend project was starting Joker & Harley by weelittlestitches
I’m hoping that I can finish this one up this week ~ yay for quick projects!
I’ve used variegated threads to do some of your patterns (i.e. Love- https://www.stitchingthenightaway.com/?s=Love) and I didn’t do each complete stitch at a time which is the way I heard you should use variegated thread. Is completing one stitch at a time the way you’ve gotten the beautiful shading in your Token of Love work above?
Yes, I’m doing those one stitch at a time to get the stronger shading. You can work a variegated either way, one stitch at a time or all the way across and then back, it just depends on how much color change variation you want in the finished piece.
