Post Seattle Tapestry update

As I mentioned previously, a bunch of us are working on Ink Circles's Tapestry.

Here's where I was when I got off the plane.  I was rushing to the corner because the fabric did not seem big enough, even though I measured, measured, measured:


July 3
 My colors are all off because of different lighting, but I really like working on each motif as I'd go.

July 9th
 I finished the whole corner bit, so I thought I would work down the right hand side.

 And this is the right side - I started by filling out the fleur-de-lis-ish motif from the center square and will use that as my guide on working down.  I'll probably work clockwise on this piece.

And just for fun, this was my view/seating arrangement for most of the stitching (it was rather nice).  I'm using an old kindle fire (that I don't use for anything, really) to stitch from while I travel, though it seems to be bleeding over into "not" travel, too, because it's convenient.  I scanned the design/pattern into a PDF and I'm using a program to highlight as I stitch.   It's not perfect, but it's fun for now.

How I organized my table and wine :)

View of Lake Washington (I think that's the right lake)
This will severely slow my progress on my WIPocalypse WIPs, but it's still fun.  I'm going to try to stitch this whole thing through, and we'll see how that goes.

  2. Looks great. If you have other friends who are stitching in different color ways, would love to see the links to their projects.

    1. So far as I know, everyone is stitching it in the designed colorway, though a few are stitching it on different fabrics. I would be interested in seeing other colorways as well. Not too many colors are used, so I imagine it would be relatively easy to convert.

  6. That is a really great design, and coming along so quickly! I'm sure your WIPs won't mind being put aside for a while with something so pretty.

    1. I keep thinking of all of the WIPs I'll work on later - I think having a quick design is helping me get more excited about the more complicated ones that normally slow me down :)
