Swimming in a sea of green
In the past week, I've concentrated exclusively on stitching the background. I reached the center mark of the canvas on the right-hand side and am within an inch of the mark on the left.
It was difficult to determine how much thread would be needed for the background--the overall piece is 17 x 19 inches--so I bought eight skeins of Vineyard Silk Classic. Of those eight, I've used three and one-half to date, and the background area is starting to narrow again.
Guess I won't need those other skeins of the same dye lot that are still in stock at my LNS! I'll even off the left side and then treat myself by working on another area for a while.
