The Great Wave off Kanagawa - Hokusai HOK004 pattern info
Julie in Eugene, Oregon
22-count hardanger with 2 strands
“Began about a month ago ... blended needles do sort of slow me down a smidge, but 'railroading' is definitely the key to keeping both strands orderly.”
“Progress into October even though I haven't been able to work on it this month (yet)”
“Okay, I am only sending this one if everyone promises to avert their eyes and pay no attention to the mess of little fringe and tails that are sticking up all over the place. It's just that there are SO many different colors in such a small area, and even on 22 count it's quite snug for starting and stopping. I am just poking the ends above, below, and to the sides for the "one-off" stitches. I will end up stitching over them later when I reach that point, but for now they are just unsightly.”
“Again, please avert eyes from the messy fringe, I promise, it will soon be gone.”
“See, some of the untidiness is finally going away. This is a little under six month’s worth of work.”
“Progress at this point in March puts us at nearly the seven month mark. Whew, only a couple more pages to go.”
June 24, 2009 “ I finished The Great Wave a few months ago, but just got it framed last week. I am including a picture. This can complete my series in the gallery! Time line: stitched from August to April. I got it done in time for the kid’s birthday, and her move into a new place. She picked out the frame and we left it with no mat, just the fabric as border (her brother’s suggestion because he said when he tells people that his mother stitched his Waterhouse Narcissus they don’t believe him, until he makes them look closely and see the individual x’s on the material). It looks good, although I can still see too many page break lines (no one else seems to notice, nor care).”
