Before I pack it away, here's the third motif from Month 3 of Best Friends Forever, all finished.
I experimented with a couched lattice in the centre of the motif. This was my first try at a lattice, and I was quite pleased with how it turned out. I'll be using it again in other projects!
The fourth motif is almost finished too, but I'm going to stick to my new plan and pack it away while I work on L'Herbier. I hope that knowing this one is so close to the finish will motivate me to keep on track with L'Herbier. Something else to look forward to!
We'll done , Monica. The colours are great. You've done a good job on the lattice. I like the scalloped edge on the lattice.ReplyDelete
Thanks very much, Jillian! The scalloped edges are the same blanket stitch half pinwheels that I've been using for the flowers on previous motifs. A new stitch, and some old stitches for continuity!Delete
I love your choice of stitches. Experimenting with new ideas and techniques is what keeps us stitchers so darned excited about what we do. See you sometime in the future BFF.ReplyDelete
Thank you! BFF may be back sooner than I thought. I think my new plan needs some tweaks.Delete
