One May Night - Roses & Lace (and a Chart Correction)


Bands 4&5, lace ribbon and roses are completed.

I chose the 4th band image to serve as a bit of a contrast to the two florals that border it. Since the next main band is definitely softer and more flowing, I wanted something just a bit more formal for this band.

While the charts show a softer pink for the rose band, I stitched the model with a darker Gloriana floss. It simply worked best for the dark gray fabric and it reminds me of a favorite deeply fragrant David Austin rose called William Shakespeare. Appropriate for this design that was inspired by Romeo & Juliet :)

I found a small error while working band four, please note the correction below, the stitch beginning the bottom and top of band. If it isn't clear what has changed let me know.
Incorrect

Correct
