Be Merry, 9

The past few days, I've been trying to make progress on Be Merry.  I am close to the spot when I will
need to move the canvas.  Of course, in the process I have violated one of my cardinal rules--don't run out of yarn in two different spots,  Actually, I preach to never start an area if you aren't positive you have enough fiber of the same dye lot.  And I did it in two places.  Admittedly, the missing stitches on the Victorian step stitch are so small, that I doubt a dye lot change will be noticeable.  Less excusable is the small area of diagonal mosaic to the right.
And I must restrain myself from shifting the canvas until after I have done the French knots in that red area and the green R above.

I almost completed the slanted gobelin in alternate directions (forming a chevron) on the letter E.

  1. Despite the oops, it's still looking good. You probably won't be able to discern those two areas from a runaway horse!
