Sprats Galore!

Tonight I did all the Sprats Head stitches around the outside of the diamond....lots of them! This stitch is worked with a single strand of DMC Ecru Perle, size 12. It is growing pretty quickly now. The back of the Sprats Heads look like Jessica variations so even the back looks pretty good!
Be sure to click the picture to get a look at the shine!

Absolutely incredible work you do - that is beautiful! I wouldn't touch it, myself, but I love watching you do it.

The Sprat's Heads are very pretty and fun to do as long as you don't stop being careful about the count. Even I can do them!

Which isn't saying much. They are durn easy. This is looking great, Pat.
