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.
As you can see above, I have some discrepancies between picot sizes. I’ve also marked a spot where I didn’t tension the braid enough while making the two picots, one opposite sides of the plait. The gap is not pretty looking. Something I must watch out for in the future.
