Well here we are the long awaited day has arrived. Take a Stitch Tuesday started late Monday evening in the UK, which is going to be great because then I can go to bed and think about the stitch I think what Sharon has started is something amazing, especially after all her technical problems over Christmas.
It may not look much but this is a "design" folks.It is , I think, the first time I have ever plannesd sowething instead of just diving straight in.
I wanted something that wasn't the usual straight herringbone, and this is the result of my doodlings.I am also going to try a bit of colour exploration using the colour of the gem associated with the month. Therefore January is a garnet. Usually dark red a beloved by the Victorians they are also found in amber and rarest of all lime green.
Here is my stitched "design"
Thank I remebered what Sharon said about working over the stitches, this is the result.
I really enjoyed producing something so different for me.
