Ebb Tide Progress
I have been making lots of progress on Ebb Tide and having a good time. After correcting the border I went back to the directions for the order of stitching. Being a Type A…I usually follow the instructions. I completed the center area except for the gold center circle. All four corner sections are done in the same stitch but the two gold threads are reversed. One gold is a ribbon and one is a #8 braid. A friend of mine who is doing this same chart decided to do all four corners the same. I decided to reverse the gold threads. I really don’t see much difference at a distance. The base is a lattice of two pearl cottons, two different shades. You can see the two areas in the photo below.
