MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Progress report

Moving right along on the seams on my wallhanging. Cretan stitch is one of my absolute favourites and works up fast. This morning I'm testing out my idea to overlay the pink stitches with another row of ivory, just to tone down the pink-ness a little. I want the embellishments to be in the forefront so I'm thinking a little less pink might be better. We'll see after I test a bit.

In my normal way of doing CQ each seam would be a different treatment, but in the interest of my time constraints I have to forego that and concentrate on the embellishing instead. Kind of feels like I'm copping out!

Perhaps that touch of uniformity brings some sanity to the "crazy"?
personally I think it looks great.
