Things are nothing if not mad around here these days and I'm finding myself without much chance to post on my blogs. I can keep up with my Instagram OK, but it's a little harder to find the time etc needed to sit down, edit photos and then create posts - something that almost always takes a lot longer than one would expect.
Anyway, enough of all that. You want to read about the project, right? =)
When I last wrote about it back in mid-July, I left it at the surface work done and cutting out complete stage. Next stage was, of course, the filling stitches. Sadly, I didn't get a lot of WIP photos during this stage, at least not decent, blog-able ones (one or two were OK to use on IG), as I was working on it quite intensively. There were basically only two types of filling in this design: woven bars with dove's eye filling in the large diamond section and Greek cross fillings in the squares.
Here's an angled view where the lovely texture of hardanger shows up well. I loved using a little bit of colour in this piece as well. White on white is beautiful and so classic, but a splash of colour is always welcome, I feel.
Next time I'll share the completed scatter cushion with you. Hope you like it so far. =)
