This is Figure #14: First Wheel, It only has 3 rows but it took me about 30 minutes to complete, that’s a long time. I hope to cut down on the time. The thread (100% mercerized cotton) is giving me some resistance and I had to switch to a Boye size 12/1.00 mm needle.

By looking on the photo you can tell the end and I will use that point to join each motif. I rate this E for easy and T for tedious. All respect for those nineteenth century women who worked with the thin threads.

If anyone wants the instructions just let me know. If we make one or two motifs a day we should be able to have enough to make something in about 3 months. Patience is a gift and we are going to need a ton of it.
