I turned out to be correct that my first stitching on the ribbon on "Noel" would not line up with my later stitching. Here is a photo that shows that I have clipped the long stitches in the mosaic to aid me in removing the stitches. Since it is Very Velvet, it looks really smudgy. I hope you get the idea. I have entered 3 photographs and I will come back after I publish this blog to look at them and decide which ones to delete. I haven't figured out a way to view how photographs look after publishing while writing the blog. So please bear with me. And don't be surprised when there is only one photograph.
I have been concentrating my efforts on stitching the ribbons. Along the way, I started stitching one of the uglier ornaments (in my opinion)--the yellow and orange combination. I have tried and tried to discern what pattern the orange stitches form to no avail. So, basketweave in petite sparkle rays it was.
