If you see red and green arranged in a circle, do you think Christmas wraths? I do. And how I ever got on this color combination in April, I don’t know.
Now these colors are a little more spring like.
I did move away from circles but I’m back to red and green. Two way darning patterns are a special love of mine, although I’m not very skilled in them yet. Here is a simple one to see the outline of what’s happening.
This photo below shows where I moved from a one way border to a two way border. When done in identical shinny thread the vertical stitching may appear to be a different color than horizontal in certain lighting.
When stitching a darning pattern I was taught to leave a little loop on the back of the fabric as I move to the next row of stitching. It’s certainly been a help in keeping the proper tension.
