Lesson 2, Pattern 1

Lesson two starts off with pulled thread stitches in the design.  Each pattern lists the fiber and color and then how much tension to apply when the needle is on the surface of the canvas.  Beginning in the upper right corner, next to the ribbon I worked diagonal cross stitches using my 712 perle cotton and created the triangle base.  Then after those were all in, I came back and recrossed those crosses to create the pattern 1.

I like how it looks so lacy. Good job!
