Work and life went explode-y, so I've been lax on keeping the blog updated. The lace work for my Fian project has continued. It also appears that a couple of blog entries have mysteriously disappeared - but I've keep transcripts as part of my project documentation, so I will be back filling the missing posts as well as adding new progress.
The gilt thread worked up rather quickly. I polished most of the piece off at Coronation.
One hiccup - I found myself with a gap between the diagonal moving from left to right (with the picot twists) and the cloth stitch.
I think it's because of where I pulled the diagonal in to the work. In the next section of cloth, I was able to eliminate the gap by changing how I used the cloth worker pair.
Work on the cotton piece began May 20th, 2016.
Work on the linen piece began late June - put on hold for work trip. Brought to Pennsic.
Work on the silk piece began late August, 2016.
