Watching Beautiful Stitching

This piece is worth watching as it develops - Jan Fitzpatrick at Thread Medley has now started a smaller piece for a bit of relief from the large rug adaptation she's been working on for a while.

You can go there and watch it almost from "day 1." Her explanations of how and why she does each thing is really a great learning experience, as well as very interesting. Beautiful work and beautiful colors!

I think a good term for these things would be "simple elegance."

And geometric designs are a lot more difficult than people think. I too, am enjoying watching the progress she is making on this!

Yes - they are mathematical and precise. Very challenging to work out, and very rewarding when the stitches meet where they should and corners turn properly.
