This freed me, both mentally and physically, to stitch on other things. Here's the progress on my Ravish Me canvas. I am so happy that I got the compensation around the letters correct and everything matches as it should. I realize that this is not my best technical work. And I don't care. I got this canvas from someone giving it away. I kitted with stuff from my stash, but now I need another skein of pearl cotton.
I'm going to add some rows around the outside as this will be a pillow. It would be nice to get this to the finishers before the end of July. Though it may take longer if I decide I need to make tassels.
More important than Ravish Me, I picked up Stars again. And immediately unpicked the last thread I put in - how did I miss that giant knot on the back? I've got to say that Clark Gable is killing me. I love how the couched triangles look - those pink ones, but absolutely hate couching with two different threads. I've got three needles going and I think towards the end of the third triangle I have finally figured out a rhythm.
Those brown triangles have got to go. It was one of those triangles that I had to remove the thread because of the knot. Then I couldn't decide if I had flipped the Grandeur and Pebbly Perle. Pretty sure I did. But anyway. I've decided that these are too dark for Clark. Then I wasn't paying attention and stitched the layered triangles with too many plies causing me to unpick yet again. I will eventually finish this square and move on. And fortunately I feel motivated to move on quickly. No more futzing around.
