Another star for the star garland II

 I finished the splendor rows of the Hungarian ground stitch.  Now the mindless process of filling in the holes with Balger #16.  I was a little surprised at how sparse the coverage was, but being the determined person that I am, I will finish stitching this this weekend (or else!).


  1. Is this 18-ct. canvas, Mary Agnes? I would think #16 would be more than adequate. I usually use #12 on 18-ct.

  2. That's what I thought, Anne. Skimpy coverage. But I wanted to finish, so I didn't wait to pick another metallic at the shop. (it is 18 canvas with #16 braid). But I am almost finished. I couldn't possibly be hard-headed!!!
