August 27, 2019--Just picked this up from Aaron Brothers Framing out of Michael's Arts and Crafts. I think they did a perfect job. I chose a formal frame and matts since this will hang in my boudoir.

January 19, 2017--December's instructions covered couching Kreinik thread across the dividing lines of each section. Lots and lots of couching. It's now done and ready to be finished into a pillow. It's a really lovely design.
PS: Decided at the last minute to fill in the very center of the design with the lightest shade of blue using T-Stitch. Ahhh, much better.

It's visually interesting how the corners look like dog ears even though they are even with the other areas. I also like the way the center recedes into the background as if you're looking down into a box. Cool.

Moving into the pale blues now. Like how it's developing.

March 7, 2016--Completed the stitching for March, Section 3. A quick and easy section. The photo was taken late in the afternoon with the sun low in the sky. Makes a difference in how the blues appear.

February 6, 2016--Section 2 for February is done. The two blues seem to be fighting each other right now, but I suspect that as more sections are completed, they'll meld together nicely.
|SOTM 2016 February Section 2 Stitched|
|SOTM 2016 January Block 1|
PS The light threads you can barely see on the canvas are basting lines.
|Block 1 with and without long center stitch|
Those of us in the guild who are stitching this year-long project plan on meeting once a month at each other's home to help with any challenges we may have. Looking forward to stitching the first block this month.
