In good news I've figured out the fastest way to stitch Ohm. I initially started out stitching the "background" and filling in the motifs but I kept getting confused about where I was. The new plan is to just pick a colour and stitch it as far as I feel comfortable, usually about two motifs and then fill in the leftover colours. These leftover colours usually show up in a new motif that I'm comfortable counting out to. So it's a bit of a leapfrog type situation. You can see it at the bottom: After that blue motif I stitched the lavender, and then the gold which I could count out from the lavender, and then the pale yellow counting out from the gold. Next I'll go back and fill in the gold and lavender motifs.
This month's question: What designs or themes do you really wish you could find? What do you think is missing among stitching designs?
I wish there were more non-Western European/North American themed ladies. I know there's a fair bit of Japanese themed designs, but so much of what's out there is Western European or American inspired. Ladies in ball gowns or girls in old pioneer American type dresses. I want more international flavour. South American, African, Asian etc. It might be available in those countries but I don't know how to find them. For example, I know that there's a huge Russian cross stitch community and I assume that there's a lot of Russian themed designs but the language barrier stops me from finding things.
