Jane released Day 5 of the TIAS today.
One TIAS participant, Maureen, wants it to be a rabbit every year. This year, I think she may have finally gotten her wish. I still haven't ruled out the Chinese dragon, though.
On the edging front, I've made really good progress.
I'm only edging the two sides, so having turned the corner means I am more than half done.
As with the first repeat, I changed the beads on the corner, adding Swarovski crystals to match the ones in the Square Elegance motif. I added even more beads to the corner repeat than I did to the first one, partly for the purpose of adding weight, and partly to create a focal point in the center. This ring is also therefore somewhat larger than the others; whereas in the original pattern the corner clover is identical to all the others. The final repeat will, of course, match the first one.
These close-ups are mainly to show the beads, of course, but they also show the construction details a little bit. I rarely make patterns that call for leaving a bare thread space between rings because it's so hard to keep it consistent. In this case, though, the unworked thread is such a short length that it's not a problem; moreover, I really like how the lock joins to the bare threads create the illusion of the threads being twisted around each other for a unique look. It's worth mentioning again that this is the Christmas Tree Edging designed by Frivole.
