I see some unstitching in my future. I was working on the backstitch of the mirror frame for Mermaid's Treasures when I noticed that the sides did not match up. One is 19 threads from the center basting line the other is 16 threads. ARGH. I'll wager a guess that one is wrong. Let's hope they both aren't wrong!
So I went back to the chart and the 19 threads away from the center is correct. So at least I know which side to look for the error of my ways.
I did a little playing with the motif that appears twice on each end of the UnPlayed Piano. I wanted it to look like a stain glass window. I used some colors of Hand-Dyed Fibers that were handy on my sewing table. I looked at stain glass windows on Pinterest to get more ideas. Then I set about trying some things out. I didn't like the specialty stitches that were called for. They were more work than they were worth. You could hardly see them.
I am weaving threads in the fill in areas. I learned this technique when I did Mute But Not Silent by Amy Mitten. I like how it is turning out. I think I want to make each one (of the four) a little different.
I went shopping this morning. So I have lots of steps but no stitching done. Time to fix that.
