This 'lantern' motive is used a lot in Kogin embroidery but it is usually bigger and with more stitches in the central section. I have removed a couple of rows to make it compliment the other patterns. These motives are usually worked on 18 or 20 count cloth and I am working on 32. It looks the same but different. Opps! I see I have missed a stitch I will have to go back and fix that up. It was when I was working in my threads, I inadvertently undid a stitch.
It is pleasing to see the piece grow. One more block and then I have to think about some Western motives.
Hop over to Pintangle and see what everyone else is up to.
