Okay, have you got your scallop stitched? Pretty darn easy, huh? Scallops are easy to stitch, but they add such a different look and feel to a piece. They definitely soften the edges of any square, geometric design!
So.... this week, let's add a bit of your accent color to the piece:
Now it's REALLY starting to look like a valentine, don't you think?
Use 1 strand of your darker accent color to make the half-eyelet triangles around the outside spaces, and also for the small Rhodes Diamonds within the center area. Then add the short diagonal stitches to frame them with 1 strand of your lighter/medium color thread.
By the way, I chose those half-eyelets because now there's a place to add some beads -- always a nice touch on a small ornament!
Next week we'll finish this up, and I'll even present you with the option of adding another outer border to the piece.... just in case you'd like a slightly larger ornament. See you next Monday!
