Work in Progress Wednesday - 16 Oct 2013


Almost there!  As you can see, I've simplified the top section quite a bit, but I think there's enough going on up there for no-one to feel there's any lack.  Maybe it would've looked better with all the filling stitches put in, but, to be honest, it was getting a bit much learning so many new things on one piece.  I like to have some challenge and to learn a new technique during most of my pieces, but to have so much new stuff to assimilate all in a row was really getting to me and scaring me off.


This row of three squares contains a few new things for me.  I did the outer two as per the pattern, but the central one I chickened out and simplified!!


And here's the top half completed!


So, if you'll excuse me, I've no time to talk today, I must get straight on with cutting out the long border trellis sections.=)

Good progress! I think there is a nice balance to the way you have filled the three squares; with a more open design for the middle one you have created something interesting for the eye to rest upon.

This is lovely Elizabeth. I agree with Queenie about the middle square. Well done

Delightful, and although it might be more characteristic to embellish the bars with picots or work filling stitches, it does look good in the simpler form too.
