Misc. Info: Started: 1997 Worked the sword block and part of Guinevere block. Threw it out 2 years later because I tried to frogg out Guinevere and ruined the 28 ct. fabric. Started again: March 2001 with 25ct fabric.
The herringbone stitch rows on either side of the sword block have been centered. This has caused me to move the Arthur and Guinevere blocks over by one row. Thus having them butted up against the wrapped backstitch line. I backstitched only the upper eye lids for both Arthur and Guinevere. Outlining the entire eye gave it an overwhelming racoon look. When I worked the jousting scene I didn't like the way the faces of the king and queen were stitched, by splitting the threads, so I left them blank.
