I have been working on this pattern for 5 years!!! I do have some questions about the stitching and hope someone is willing to correspond with me. I sent an inquiry to the Wysocki site, before I saw this, but the more replies the better!
1--I'm not sure what to do with the ends of the threads in the single cross stitches of the wallpaper, since there's really nothing to hide them in. Should I knot them and cut close to the cloth?
2--I'm not sure about the 4 sets of 2 parallel marks in the x-stitch spots up in the left corner, where the handle meets the green box....are those couching marks? In the details section, I only see one sentence where it specifies couching, which are the "Remaining thin red lines" in tan couching. However, I don't even see where those are.
3--I understand about the cording where the yarn is on the pattern, but don't know where to do backstitching vs. couching. Is the couching done where the curvy lines are? Like the colored lines on the lampshade? However, I see that the thin red lines in the window are backstitched.
4--Maybe it's my vision, but it's difficult to discern the thick vs. thin lines at times, so I foresee that as a potential problem. Any suggestions?
Thanks for any help!!!
