I’m loving stitching this. I’ve now completed bands 2 and 3. Band 2 is the backstitch bows and band 3 is the rows of Half Rhodes stitch.
You’ll see that the band 3s do not go all the way across. That’s where the diagonal bands start. The instructions say to do the first diagonal band next so it’s a guide to where the horizontal bands start. Makes sense, so that’s what I’ll be doing.
A close up to see the pretty Half Rhodes stitches.
I’ve got some invisible thread now so I can bead it, so it might look a bit more blingy for the next update.
