The Best of Both Worlds

If you will recall, I set out trying to carve a more historically accurate strapwork decoration. Well … I ran into a bit of a problem.

Equally dividing section “B” into 1/4″ increments, made the elongated central shape impossible. Oh my, what to do?

Not wanting to have the entire field stippled, I decided to pull two elements from the nulling pattern.

Alternating these elements, I completed the side piece.

Now, if the weather will cooperate, I might just get the other side done. It has been so cloudy these last few days. Overcast skies make for a dark shop. All I can do is pray for sunshine!
