Completed Lesson #1

Lesson #1 is complete!
The bottom right grid was filled in using Marlitt, following the chart. This was worked from the outside in, taking care to make sure that the threads lay flat for maximum light play.
Next, the top rectangle was filled in, then the right hand. Both begin by laying Kreinik 1/16th ribbon from end to end. Then each area is couched down, using Perlee, following the charted design. Last, two strands of Kreinik cord are used to create the cross stitches in both rectangles.
Enjoy the sheen and color play in this area.

How lovely! This is very very pretty, Pat, and the colors are magnificent. I think I'm going to like this....

Hi Pat,

Very pretty!

And the picture is very clear so you can really see the stitches and the sparkle of the fibers.
