Two colors done - updated

Well, it's not much to see but it should be easier to see.  Here is my Mini Wings in Repose with 2 colors done:

This is 168 and 415 done.  Next color is 318.  Hmm, more gray...well at least it's not my hair that's gray!

Oh, some more details on this piece:

  • 32 count white evenweave
  • 1 strand over 1 thread
  • true half cross stitches (not needlepoint tent stitches)


Keebles asked:

How is the coverage going on that?

After I finished the first color, I had the thought that I should really look at the coverage.  I pulled out my magnifier and took a gander.  I can't say definitively at this point, but I think it's going to be fine.  Until I get into really dark colors, I won't really be able to tell how good the coverage actually is.

Happy Stitching!

How is the coverage going on that? I'm debating doing a SS HAED on 32ct with half stitches and I wondered if 32ct would be enough or if I needed to go up to 36.

It's fun to see these rapid small updates from you for a change :) Not the I don't appreciate your regular impressive page finishes. It's just fun to see this grow one colour at a time :)
