The first few sections of Magi 3 are indeed complete.
I’ll tell you, though, that it was a close thing. See that far right section? The one that’s kinda bargello-like, but without a repeatable pattern? It could have discouraged me. I could easily have set this aside again, as I did when stressing out over the bargello on Magi #2.
I’m happy to say that I forced myself through it. I’m not completely happy with the way it turned out, due to the overwhelming amount of “confetti” that’s coming through. (In case that’s not clear from the photo, “confetti” = little bits of white canvas showing up in between the stitches.) I’m not sure what I’m going to do about it. I could add one more strand of thread to a few of the stitches where this is most obvious, but I think I’m going to try ink first, instead. Perhaps just coloring some of the worst offenders would help.
I’m open to other suggestions, though! Please share your tried-and-true solutions to this problem!
