TDiTM Stitch #41
Reference: Twelve Dozen Stitches in Twelve Months
If you've been stitching along with me, then you surely already know that I just love this little five ray fan. It just looks so good with so many combinations!
And, it's so easy to stitch! I do the center vertical stitch first, making sure it is the height I want. Then, I imaging a base line at the bottom, so I can visualize a 90 degree angle. Next I stitch the outside rays...at 45 degrees of the center vertical and this imaginary base line...and make it about one quarter to one third the length of the center vertical. Lastly, I look at the tip of the center vertical and the tip of the 45 degree angle...and imagine a line between these two. The last stitch is started on this imaginary line and ends at the base of the other two stitches...and is placed halfway between them. Hope you can figure out what I'm doing by these directions!
