I finished my mom’s birthday present! Hurray! I even mailed it off today and she’s sure to get it long before the Ides of March.
It was rather challenging. I found the individual parts fairly easy to do, however, linking them with the clones knot chains was difficult for me. There is no real method to the madness. You just need to link the motifs with the chains and knots to fill it in. In the end I succeeded after ripping my stitches a few times.
It looks rather Christmasy but it’s supposed to be grape leaves and grapes with scrolls. Originally I chose purple for the grapes but then decided the red reminded me of wine. Oh well. It didn’t come out too bad… right? Right.
