Hello Everyone: Errors do happen for various reasons. If you find an error please bring it to my attention so it can be posted for others. Thank you.


escaped on  me before a little error was discovered.  Please follow the chart and instructions belowconcerning the corner.  Thank you for your patiences.

STEP 3:  To create the Flat Stitch Variation section you must pay close attention to your stitch direction.  Use three plies of Soie d’alger 1341 for the entire section.  Follow the Master Chart and Figure 3 for placement. I used a variety of colours to help in reading this chart.  Watch the placement of the first stitch that is shown in grey.  You can place the compensating stitches, shown in green, whenever you feel comfortable; I would do them as soon as possible so that they don't get forgotten.  I have also included a close up of the right-hand corner as the stitches turn to give a mirror image.  You can turn your page or turn your work to make the stitching easier.  Note there are six Continental Stitches worked on the mitred line using three plies of Soie d’alger 1342.

It has been brought to my attention that #8 Perle Cotton #838 is not available. Here are a couple of suggestions:
- use 4 plies of DMC floss #838
- use DMC #840 which blends with the other suggested colours
- Whichever you choose, make sure to make #5 Perle Cotton #838 the same as the #8 Perle Cotton you choose.

I am truly sorry for this oversight. - CAROLYN


that on the design Anne Boleyn in the Blackwork section, #47 is missing so please just travel from 46 to 48.
