So, moving on from where we were in my last post. I worked the scrolls in a DMC Diamante thread doubled in the needle. I decided on Hungarian braided chain stitch, courtesy of Mary Corbet's You Tube posts, as it gave the texture but was not as complicated as trying to work out Elizabethan plaited braid. One day I'll get to grips with historic stitches!
