The Picots Worked!

After altering the pricking in Photoshop to reflect the addition of the pinchain wheels and their picots but keeping it the same size as in the book, I was ready to start. As with my other Chantilly pieces, I used Pipers 4/20 silk with 140/2 silk for the gimp. The first motif to work was the pinchain wheel with picots, and everything worked fine. I won’t know how it looks until I can take some of the pins out because right now it’s a dense forest of pins. But so far, so good.
