More inside lines

I am working the border, per the instructions, from the outside in. In the last session I completed the stitches in the floche. Tonight, I did them in the #4 braid. The first row is the diagonal Gobelin over three threads and the second row is a single tent stitch skipping one thread all the way around. The pattern called for completing each of the four sides, and then moving around the piece. I knew that if I did that, I may get bored with the design and it would move slowly. This way, I watch it develop all the way around!

Like you, I think I'd want to do all the sides at once instead of one at a time. This is getting really interesting! Stitch faster....

Hi Pat,

I would do the same as you. Stitch each stitch pattern all the way around before going on to the next stitch. :-)
