Indian ground block

The first diagonal rows of indian ground.  The shading might be a little bit too subtle, but we will see how it works out.

Eyelets finished?

I think the eyelets are done.  I haven't filled all the spaces, mostly because I like the distorted shapes in the fabric.

New block started, with square eyelets of varying sizes, using different white threads.

Byzantine block and the bigger picture

The byzantine block is finished.  I enjoyed stitching this one and really like how it's turned out.  I decided to use only full stitches, and I think it gives it an interesting edge.

I have chosen another cloud block, and stitched the outline, but that's about as far as it's got so far.

The bigger picture!  This is the bottom half of my 16 block grid.  I have plans for the two empty blocks, and I really need to get to work on the cloud blocks.

Byzantine block

A block of byzantine in progress.  I am varying the stitch length, and leaving some of the linen bare.

Milanese block

The block is finished now.  I think my shading is better towards the end than at the start, but that is the whole point of doing it!
