Ort Box Stitched

I got the blackwork finished & the bottom. I really had to focus doing the blackwork (Area 7 – top photo). I enjoyed it because it was a challenge but I wouldn’t choose to do a lot of it!

On the bottom square, I wish the overdyed thread on the one diagonal had some red & white in it. But, I didn’t notice that as I was stitching. I didn’t even notice it until I looked at the picture!

Now, I can remove the canvas from the frame, cut the squares apart, & stitch the edges down!

Blackwork has always been a challenge for me too. But the ‘box’ looks good. Will watch for the final finishing.

Thanks for sharing. enjoy Carol

Melita- do you have pictures of the next step of finishing the pieces? I am at that point myself….

Hi Karen, I think you are at folding the edges & stitching the borders. See page 7-11 diagrams 14-17. I will post my pics later tonight but I do not think they will be any better instructions or pics. I didn’t understand 17 anyway. Melita
