#3 - 100 Motif Challenge
This orange and green, Finca #16 motif, and the one underneath I did get right! The green/orange is a vintage pattern from somewhere - I don't remember where. I finished it and just stuck it on top of the lilac tat, and I am enjoying the old-fashioned look of these as they sit temporarily on my table. There is something so appealing about this arrangement to me. Funny, what pleases...
Then, feeling more confidence, I took my markers in hand and attacked Jon's 'Almas' diagram. I am determined to get this right!
So, I started it.
The Finca #16 is still right up there on my favourite list. It does have a whitish undertone - maybe the dye is not that consistent? Anyone know what I mean?
I don't mind this quirky colour-thing. It gives the stitches a texture that is interesting.
I picked the Delica beads out at night, and thought they were blue, but they are actually green with bluish highlights. Pretty. You can't really see them here.
As of this morning:
