The Picots Worked!
Saturday, 10 January 2009
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.
