I have decided I am total rubbish at petit point. Not that the stitches are bad, not at all. The back looks great. It is just that I make counting mistakes which I then have to spend a ridiculous amount of time taking out. Then of course putting back in. I pay close attention to the chart and I still do it. AAARRRGGGHHH. I am determined. I have never been one to hold up the white flag, But oh boy this thing is kicking my proverbial!!!!!!
Some people take their needle and thread and happily dance across the canvas outlining something five and ten inches away. They get bored with one area and have totally vacant spaces between their other body of stitches. Oooooh I wouldn't dare. I don't stray too far from the mother ship! I am looking forward to getting on with the navy blue that outlines this center medallion of the carpet. That will make all these colors pop to life.
BTW... This is a different canvas from the first one I started and didn't like. I also bought a new frame to work it on.
