And here's what I have completed at the end of two days of class. Not too impressive to look at given the number of hours spent on it! Given the big reticello project I completed last year, I was quite comfortable with the Aemilia Ars square in the lower left hand corner, which uses exactly the same techniques. And I'm happy with that part of the work completed so far.
But the reason I was really excited to take the course was to learn how to stitch stitches similar to the "combination stitch" lace in in the upper left hand corner. That I'm not too happy with yet.
Doreen was most helpful, and shared several technique hints that I'm sure will be useful. . . but as you can guess, the real trick is practice, pratice, and more practice. So that's the next step. Cut out the current stitching and start again (on try number 5 on this stitch). It is getting closer to how it's supposed to look, so I'm hopeful that by try 6 or 7, I may have a "keeper."
