This is the scheduled three-weekly post for the SAL that I’m doing with several other crafty blogs.
Finally, finally, that blasted zebra print stripe is finished. Hooray!
There’s a row of backstitch between the two zebra stripes, which will have gold metallic wrapped around it. I’ve decided that maybe it would look better with the metallic so have ordered some of the only brand that’s reasonably nice to stitch with – Kreinik. I’ll also redo the bit from higher up that should be metallic. I did it in a gold-yellow as the metallic that I had was vile to use.
The problem that I’m struggling with now is, that the upper row of zebra is wrong. I mentioned in an earlier post that I’d managed to stitch the left page on the right side and only realised when the next page didn’t match up. Now that it’s all finished, I can see that it really would look better if I redid the upper row correctly, as the two rows should match up. Shall I or shan’t I? How much will it bug me if I don’t? I think I may have to, you know. Sigh.
