Progress, Book of Ink

Posted: October 27, 2016 by zenstitcher in Progress Pics

There were quite a few important reasons I couldn’t join Sue on retreat this year. It’s the first year I’ve missed since…  well, it was before 2010, I believe. I missed the time away and the chance to set aside time every day dedicated to this project. Since it’s so close to completion, I decided to put it back up on the floorstand and nibble away at it as a way to step down from the insane amount of writing I’ve been doing lately. Tracy Horner’s Book of Ink Circles is a straight-up tribute to the muses of inticacy and precision, and it’s a good way to soak up mental energy when I’m exhausted from spinning it out into stories.

Here’s where I am now:

Nit-picky critics like me can’t help but notice the block in the lower left corner and how the lighter blue is having some problems. Well, the problems are memory-related — mine — I keep forgetting that I started deepening that light blue with one strand of DMC 798 over the top stich in each cross, and that I need to finish it so it looks right. đŸ˜€ I might do that to finish up the afternoon because I really am dragging ass, today.

Oh, shit. I see where I missed a stitch. Well, at least one. Can you find it?
