The Gazebo

Lana has just completed The Gazebo, one of the patterns she was considering in The Stitcher's Dilemma. With non stitching gaps during our Queensland trip, it has taken about 6 weeks to complete.
The pattern uses a combination of one and two strand stitches to provide depth and focus. The background and paving is mostly one strand giving a lighter effect. The back stitch around all the critical parts also brings out the gazebo, paving, plants and hedges.

It was nice to be able to stitch a smaller pattern and finish it in a shorter time period.
Lana has never really kept track of time each pattern takes but I think my accounting desire for measurement may be rubbing off!
