Lady Edith, Step 1 by Gay Ann Rogers

The center waffle has a variation in it because I was watching TV. I have to blame it on something other than I can’t follow well written instructions. This is my first piece from Gay Ann Rogers. Only looking closely at the original would anyone know. I actually like it just as well.

In my opinion, this is not a piece for someone just starting counted projects. In order to get this correct, I had to stitch in a different order than Gay Ann suggested. There was no way I would have counted correctly doing all the Tied Diagonal Stitches without stitching the Plaited, Slanted, and Elongated Cross Stitches first. Working from the center out is safer for me. Also, I am happy that my husband golfed when he did and is reading a 1,000-page book about Abe Lincoln (the period before his presidency) because the TV is off. I am proceeding well. Everything is matching up as expected.

By the time of my ANG Main Line Stitchers chapter Stitch-in yesterday, I had completed the inner brown border of Elongated Cross stitches. So, stitching the rest of Step 1 was easy while we chatted over Zoom. The difficult counting was done.

All this was Step 1! I just love it. It’s broken up into only 2 steps. While I’m anxious to forge onward, I will switch to a different project to be sure that I am ready for our chapter meeting on Monday February 8.
