I have now completed the 4th mattress. I have really enjoyed this pattern. I must say that I feel that I am having more fun with this project that I deserve <>. I am so happy that I decided to start stitching it now instead of later. It will give me some experience in Blackwork and will make it easier to tackle some other wonderful Blackwork project that I have been keeping for later.
This photo may look a bit different as it was taken outside in the shade instead of under big lighting inside my stitching room.
At first I thought that I might change some of the colors that Marion has chosen for herself, but I like her choice of color so much that I have been sticking to them so far.
Six more mattresses to go. Tomorrow, I will start on mattress #5. Another thing that I am finding out is that Blackwork, at least this project, goes rather quickly even for me as I see myself as a SLOW stitcher. I truly enjoy the journey, not just the destination, so I don't mind taking the time it needs for completion.
