NocturneIt's been a long time since Nocturne has seen the light of day! This project was one of the three pieces with the highest amount of votes, when everyone voted for the projects they wanted to see more progress on. I really wanted to complete page 8 for this blog but I'm only about halfway through. The chart I'm working on is the old version. After discovering the art was re-charted, I put the wip aside for awhile to decide whether or not to restart with the newer chart. I've decided to continue working on the original chart though. I've already restarted this one before and don't have the heart to restart it again, especially since quite a decent amount has been completed. Anyway, the newer chart may blend better and have more depth but I still think the original is pretty! They both have their strengths and weaknesses.
Mock-up Comparison; Old Chart on the Left and New Chart on the Right:
Added Mini Mock-up for Chart Comparison. Left: Mini Nocturne. Middle: Original Regular Chart. Right: New Re-charted Regular Chart. I darkened the first two mock-up's to make them closer to the new version. They usually stitch up darker anyway (at least the older charts do), so I usually darken them to get a closer idea to how they will look once stitched!:
Rob's StitchingLast year, some of you may remember the Blog posted about my neighbour Rob. I was teaching Rob to stitch and he was working on the R.A.E.M.E pattern. Rob has been on some adventures over the past year traveling around Australia! His stitching also went traveling with him him! Anyway, I promised to share his stitching progress here as some of you were eager to follow along with his project.
Current Progress: Stitched on 14 count Aida. Tent Stitched Background and Full Cross Main Motif:
Happy Stitching! xxx
