I got started. The first lobe of my oak seemed to be perfect.
About this point I realized the pattern showed the canvas turned diagnally. Going well, I don't care to start over. I wonder if this is really an issue.
This side is perfect. Then I realize why diagnal matters. The top won't work. But it look so nice. Maybe I can do something else and make it work.
And nope, does not look right at all. I also notice my stitches are not equal lengths on both sides. Realize I have to either buy more plastic canvas or I have to use Aida cloth so I have room to work diagnal stitches. When you see something well made you don't think about how many times it took the crafter to get it right.
