Here we go! Part 26 is a border made of flowers, where our stalwart stitcher did 2 variations of the flowers, one on the top and one on the bottom!
This one is a strange distance, since there’s a gap between the fancy boxes of part 23 and this one. If you’re eyeballing it, it’s just under the left side of the shield. If you’re measuring, there’s a little more than 2 inches between the top right corner of the fancy box and the beginning of the little red ditty at the bottom of this border.
This is probably one of my favorites, so far. I’m honestly not sure what to call these, but they look like the center arches in a border, so…
This piece is just to the right of part 2 of the Fancy boxes. I mean, just a few stitches to the right! The space above this is empty, so make sure you’re giving enough room under the skirt of the Queen (it’s about 2 inches down!).
This one looks like she started it and didn’t like it. There are irregularities which make it more difficult to stitch with any kind of speed. She didn’t finish the pattern and there are parts I simply can’t make out.
This is the piece that’s in the way if you move Part 21’s tridents over a bit, so… yeah.
This piece starts immediately to the right of the tridents and just under the wheat leaves on the right side. This is nearly 2 inches from the left margin of the finished piece.
Here we go! Part 21! This part is made of 4 tridents stitched very close to each other.
This one, like Part 20, is very close to the seam finishing, so be aware of that if you’re planning on framing this piece. If you’re going for 100% accuracey, don’t move it. This piece will affect the next pattern if you scoot it over, so be aware of that, too! It’s under Part 20 by just a few stitches and the tridents are stitched very close together so be aware of that, too.
For such a seemingly easy piece, this one deals with a lot of spacing difficulty, just a heads up!
Here’s another release! This one stumped me for a while until I realized that the reason it was giving me trouble is that she was stitching on linen and it wasn’t conforming to stiff aida-cloth! Once I figured that part out (and found a lower quality image so I could see the stitches… I know, that sounded weird to me, too!), the pattern made much more sense.
So, here are 6 fluer de lis in a repeating pattern. Stitched in this format, it could almost be a blackwork pattern background stitch. Hmm…
This one starts really close to the left margin. Almost a quarter inch. This wouild’ve made it really difficult to frame, and, as you can see, she almost finished the seam on top of it. So, adjust the placement depending on your purpose. 100% reproduction, don’t move it. If you want to frame it, scoot it over a bit. You’ll have almost an inche to scoot it to the side without running into the next piece. The same will be true for the tridents underneath, which will be the next part I release.
Here we go! Another example of our 16th century friend’s magnificent understanding of wheat borders! This one is just a single run of the pattern, but this would be beautiful along the edge of a napkin!
So, this piece is about 2 inches from the left margin, but just a few stitches to the left of Jesus’s feet.
Here is Part 17, which I have affectionately named Fraulein Funky Hands. Seriously, what’s up with those hands? I can only assume she was trying to make sure you could see each finger on each hand. The result looks like it needs the attention of a medical professional.
Anyway, this one completes the row that started with Jesus. It’s located under part 15 and to the right of part 16.
