It’s time for me to show you all what I’ve been working on these last few weeks.
This is the first pattern that I have designed myself and I’m quite happy with it so far. I’ve finished the first go but I think I am going to go back and change the font I used for ‘Life’ to the font I used for ‘football’ as I just don’t think the font I used goes with the rest of the piece.
There were a few small changes along the way too, more to do with spacing or a stitch in a different place that I made a note of and am going to go back and change in the pattern too.
I was a bit worried about the colour changes in the word ‘GAME’ but I think they came out okay in the end. It’s not as abrupt as I was fearing. I really should have taken a better picture as it’s all crumpled but I’ll save that for when it’s done and framed. That’s my excuse anyway!
I did it on 16 count AIDA fabric in oatmeal, which wasn’t as dark as I was expecting so the white pitch lines don’t show up as well, but I think it still works okay.
These are the others taking part in the three-weekly Stitch-A-Long and you should check out their links to see what awesome projects they’ve been up to.
