Another patch is complete!
This is really a fun piece to stitch — even with all of the ripping. I stitched the Mini Mistake with a couple of color changes. Instead of using the dark, medium and light of family A, I used the medium, light and very light of family A – all of the other colors were as suggested.
There are a couple of things I would change (of course)…
First: I would use smyrnas and not spatula stitches in the corners and then add compensating stitches to the knitted plait stitch – by the time I decided this I had much more stitching in than I was willing to rip.
Second: Stitch the basketweave around the center motif before putting in the double straight crosses. I stitched the crosses first and then had about 1/4 of the basketweave in before I ripped out both and changed the order.
Also: be careful with the chart when getting ready for the scotch stitches. My piece matches the use of the scotch / basketweave as shown on the Gleneagle cover photo. The chart shows an extra set of scotch stitches around the perimeter of the center motif for a total of 24 rather than 12.
Next will be the Leaf Patch… I will probably stitch the remaining patches in clockwise order.
