I mentioned in the last post how much I liked the stitch that Brenda Hart gave Carole for her cookie baking lady.
I knew it was exactly the stitch I wanted for the moon on Blue Moon. So, I drew it out and started fiddling with the traveling path.
Generally I think most traveling threads can be hidden in the finishing so I don't lose a lot of sleep over it. (I know, the needlepoint police are going to strike me down for that one.)
This one intrigued me. Should it be worked like Alicia's Lace or like 4-Way Continental? In diagonal rows or zig zaggy?
Or should it be worked like a Blackwork Pattern. Blackwork was the winner in my mind. It held my attention span!
The top one is my stitch as I diagrammed it but with the addition of the little over one stitches in the pattern. And of course worked in two easy to see colors. Not my two almost the same colors for the oh so subtle, I think I am going blind effect.
