Makes an interesting filler texture, doesn't it? Bit of a challenge to work, as it takes two passes in an out-and-back traveling line, and it doesn't really turn corners. And it EATS floss. The green background in the upper square alone will need six or seven half-meter strands of silk to fill. (Naturally, it is also extra-slow going - and frogging is not a sane option. Any errors are staying right where they are.)
Next challenge is to figure out how to work half an arrowhead stitch. The red motif over the rose has a secondary star pattern worked into the arrowhead filling, and some stitches will have to be color divided on the diagonal.
Meanwhile, the snow is gone and the sun has come out. Best of all, it looks like the cast on my ankle will come off at the end of the month and I will finally be able to escape from house arrest - WooHoo!
(The blog and the group have been a sanity-saver! Dropping in and seeing all the lovely progress updates is a treasure to look forward to.)
