I cross-stitched the gold feathers plus some decorative dots. I’m still thinking about the large black feathers – maybe fill them in with double running stitch over two squares? That would be quicker and easier than cross-stitch, and still fit with the geometric nature of the pattern.
This is going to be a nice big design. I thought about working it at a higher count and therefore smaller, but I decided to go for impressively large. The idea is it will look bold and stylized.
You’ve made a great start – it’s a very striking design!
the more I work on it the more I like it.
Beautiful i like it Marie-Claire
I admire your confidence with counting the huge gaps! I always work adjacent sections together so that there’s no risk of miscounting.=)
time will tell if it is confidence or recklessness 😉
