Crewel Problems

So I’m still trying to complete the crewel sampler project that I have been working on… oh for the last many months.  I’m forcing myself to finish this before I start a new project.  This is actually the practice before the sampler.  However, I don’t seem to work on it very often and when I do I ended up doing a lot of ripping.

On this part the right side looks great.  The left – not so much… I don’t like that I can’t see the clear definition.  I think I have to re-trace and try again.  This is my toughest stitch.  The long and short shading stitch.  I signed up for another class with Cyberstitches, which is a wonderful benefit of guild membership, Shading Stitches.  It is all long and short stitch, so I’m going to have to get this one going.

      Well, clearly practice is working since it’s definitely improving. Very pretty!
