Part 8 of the mystery SAL with Hélène was very stitch intensive; with 1220 stitches for the final colour. I actually made more work for myself than necessary because I unpicked one of the colours I had chosen for part 4 – that mustardy yellow colour
As the picture became clear, I realised I needed something more flesh coloured. Anyway, several hours of very intensive stitching later
I’m now waiting impatiently for Hélène to send me the backstitch details so the picture will really come to life. I also have an idea of how I’m going to finish this design so stay tuned.
