More couching

I return to the Kimono, the cuffs and the collar. I started down the right side of the collar after completing the right hand side cuff. I find that I am getting a little faster at this, but not much! LOL. This is a single strand of Kreinik #12 couched in place with three strands of the Soie Cristale. I doubt that this will be finished anytime soon, and the June stitch will be out in a couple of days!

I am watching with great interest your posts about the SOTM kimono. Still slowly gathering my own threads. By the way, do you still have your Loretta Spears Mystery #2pattern? I am looking for anything Loretta Spears! :)

The couching is taking me forever, too. I ran out of my Kreinik (I am using it to couch my silk, by the way, as I like the contrast more) and had to wait to get it and now I have a mistake to pull out and redo. This is going to be an ongoing stitch I think, given how long it takes, so don't worry. We'll be doing this for a while yet! (But June goes fast, promise).
