McCoya's Smocked Bishop
This is the bishop I am making for my friend Jocylyn's first grandchild. She will be a baby girl and their strong Scotch heritage has inspired Mom and Dad to call her McCoya. I love it. I am using Trudy Horne' Shoulder Button Bishop pattern, my go to, and the Bayless plate that comes with it. There will be delica beads I think too. I have some really lovely variegated floss but I have never used variegated floss before. Do I just cut and smock? Do I make some sort of effort to follow a sequence of shading? Any helpful hints here would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
This will be my current "hand" project. I will also get going on my muslin for the CJ.
