Last year I started a SAL by Tempting Tangles called Enlightenment. The patterns are released every two weeks and there’s still another two patterns to go but I’ve finished it!!
Last time I showed it to you I was here…
It was pretty obvious where the design was going (which was somewhat disappointing) especially when the pattern came out for the next section which took us up to the middle of the bottom row…so I just kept stitching to get it finished.
I’m pleased it’s finished, I’m going to make it into a cushion for our guest room. I like the colours, especially in the border which uses a beautiful variegated thread. I actually added more colours than the pattern suggested. The design just used four threads, brown, dark green, soft green and the variegated. I used three or four extra shades of green to bring in a bit more variation – for example, the round trees should all have been stitched in the darker green.
I like it, I just expected a bit more interest, a bit more variation.
