My experiment… the design

I decided to chart out my version of:
Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking.
It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
(Corinthians 13:4-8)

It has ended up being 120 by about 320 count, which is problematic as I for some reason started stitching about 7 inches down from the top of the fabric. If I had started the normal 3 inches down it would fit… so the question is, do I frog and hope that I have enough of this floss, or just start again? I do like this colour combination though… decisions, decisions.

Anyway, the design so far – I have to add the last line in, replace the band of the rings as I have decided even though I like interlinked rings it doesn’t really fit overall.. I might change the font in one section but other than that I am happy with what I have charted so far – there are blanks but they can be filled in pretty easily…



And stitched:

Does anyone think this would be a chart I should share when I finalise it all?

    SHARE!!!!! I WANT IT!!!!! LOL. Though I usually want most charts, lol. I also like this saying. I believe a lot of people need to be reminded of this saying.

    Hmm…I would frog being very careful with the floss & wrap the floss around bobbins to try & straighten it out to be able to use it in the case you ran out then start with the fabric & floss again. But that is my opinion. I also like the color combo.
