Can you believe it’s finished! The final area is the upper left corner, which I filled with laid threads then stitched over with cross stitches.
First the laid threads. These are just laid horizontally then vertically, nothing fancy. I used one strand of the Rainbow Gallery Overture because I wanted the color changes, but something a little different from the lower right area with the laid ribbons.
Then I stitched cross stitches over the intersections with the fine metallic braid. Easy peasy!
If you want, you can use different colors of the fine metallic braid, but I was happy using just one. I completed each cross stitch before moving to the next one.
And now for the diagrams:
Here’s the final complete diagram:
I hope you enjoyed our stitch along! Next week (fingers crossed) I’ll show you how I’m planning to finish this, then I’m taking a little break from posting stitch alongs for a couple of weeks. I’m backed up with some other things I must get done. Then I’ll be back with another stitch along, this time a mystery!
For your convenience, here’s a pdf of the complete instructions:
Thanks for playing with me!
