Got a Few Ends to Hide

February 20, 2012 11:18 am
Well, I’ve made some good progress on the first “real” version of the tea cloth, but most of it was done in the car or on an airplane with just a bit too much movement for trying to sew in ends.  I’ve got a total of 1 done so far….  :)  I’m making this out of size 50 Flora that I’ve had for a while and I’m pretty happy with the way it’s turning out.
I did hide that one end because I haven’t actually done much sewing in of ends with the smaller sizes and I wanted to make sure it wasn’t going to be too bad.  I still haven’t found a good needle for sewing in size 80.  The finished piece always ends up looking bulky to me, but the 50 seems to be working nicely.  Just need to sit down and do them.  This tea cloth is made up of so many little motifs that I expect the hiding of ends will be the most annoying part of the project, but if I keep on top of them and hide them as I go they shouldn’t be too bad.
I’m color coding this piece as I go.  Here you can see the start of it as all the 16-ring circles are in white and the 12 ring circles in light purple.  Then I have the other parts mapped out as medium purple, dark purple and black.  Hopefully the whole thing looks good when it’s all put together.
