I continue to find it interesting to see Gay Ann’s designs develop such as when she repeats a stitch but in a different color and number of repetitions. And, Gay Ann is not afraid to leave some open canvas which I find can be difficult. This piece was broken up into 4 steps but I could not stop!

I am glad my phone has the ability to flip a photo and make a mirror image because I couldn’t see where to put the three long diagonal silver stitches in the center opposite sides. Looks easy now!

There are 4 columns of Tied Mohair that called for Planet Earth Fun-Fuzz-Funn but I had Rainbow Gallery Fuzzy Stuff which was fine. However, the pattern called for long strands of the darker color tied with the lighter color. I didn’t see that until I stitched them all dark. I should have taken a pictures of all the iterations I went through. Next, I stitched 2 of them as instructed. Bill & I liked the 2 dark ones better than the combo. So, out the combo came. Then, I stitched 2 of them with just the lighter thread. Bill liked either but when I showed him the picture, he agreed with me that the lighter gray was better. I stitched 9 columns to figure it out. Luckily, they were not a large area or a complicated stitch.

Gay Ann was by inspired by this photo of Lady Mary for her design.
