Mystery Retreat Project Progress #4
I worked on the Mystery Retreat project several times this week, but mostly yesterday. I am working on the right-side section. I have completed the center motifs which took hours & hours, but they sure turned out nice! The very center is a "Padded Double Fan Doubled over a Double Fan Doubled!!!!!! So there are 3 layers and 5 different threads. The only thread that was a problem was silk which is stranded & difficult to lay nicely in the Double Fan Doubled. The two motifs above & below that are Padded Pyramids. Again, multi-layered, this time 3 layers, 2 of which are the padding. These went quite fast actually. Oh and then there are the giant Rhodes at each corner of the center motif. Those are in Neon Rays, which I steam ironed cause I didn't want to wait for it to dry! It'll be 2 weeks before I get to it again, but I hope to complete this section fairly quickly once I get back to it.
