SAL Dentelles Part 8

This week I finished the section early. I even managed to make it in time to be in Esther's post.


It started out badly on Thursday, I barely started and had to frog it three times. So I decided instead of cross stitching the top row of flowers (no idea what they are), I replaced them with eyelets (they look like daisies to me). I also decided to leave out the back-stitches that go inside the boxes. I liked the simplicity of it.


Here it is overall. It doesn't look like much in the picture, it looks better in sunlight.


I received the last part this morning. I would like to say I'll work on it tonight, but I probably won't. Instead I want to work on Gelati al Cioccolato by Kathryn Drummond.

I worked on it back in December, but was having trouble understanding the instructions for the fan filling. Kathryn was kind enough to make a great video on punto antico fan filling. And so I was able to make my first one this weekend. Check out the video if you are interested and subscribe to her channel. She says she plans to make more videos like these.
