Light 1 - Update #2

Long time no post! But I have a lot of progress to share on Light 1 by Alisa Okneas. I managed to get a picture that's pretty true to the actual colors for once. Go me! :)


I'm absolutely in love with the beautiful colors in this piece! It's even better in person.

The only tricky part so far has been dealing with blended colors on 40 count fabric. I've been doing the bottom leg in one color and the top leg in the other, which seems to work pretty well. I did have to make a few modifications, since a couple of the blends use white, and the second color looked really overpowering when crossed over the white (I've been consistently putting white on the bottom). So just a few little changes to lighten up a couple of the blended colors. Looks great, though!

I'm pretty sure backstitching this will be a nightmare - there's soooo much! - but I'm going to enjoy this part for now. Haha. :p

  2. Looks as if this is stitching up so quickly. I also find blended threads sometimes difficult even if they are on a lower count fabric. Your project looks great

  6. This is looking lovely. I also use that method for blended threads, it makes a nice effect.

  7. Beautiful colours in this project! Great idea for the blended threads to get the mixed colour effect.

  8. The Beautiful Sea border does look like it might take more than one skein of thread. It turned out lovely, great colors. And you are very brave ordering off of a website that had to be translated, I worry about buying PDF charts from English sites (more due to my limited tech skills than anything else!)
