Here is another piece of Point de Gaze based on the same design as the other butterfly piece.
I worked it in a #50 cotton, with a #100 (or 120) cotton for the Pt. de Gaze ground.
For fun, I added an "Arachne"spiders web!!!
There is a second layer of upper wings, but this does not show up clearly.
My ground stitches need a lot of practice!!

Some stitches and grounds show where one days efforts end and the next days efforts start, too!!
I especially refer to some double Point de venise, - 2 stiches, with 2 stitches across at the bottom. hard to get it to sie in proper rectangular blocks without leaning over one way on one row and the other way on another row. In my piece, I can see a good day, where they all sat properly, and the next day they had a definite lean over!!! Pt. de Gaze ground is the same. the area by the butterfly on the Right, is much more loose than the other areas!
Lace is definitely meant to be viewd from afar!!! :)

I am SO glad to hear that someone else has trouble with that ground. And yes I saw the arachne spider web.

Than k you for the kind comments. It looks good - from a distance!!

I hope you noticed the Spiders web - Just for Arachne folks!!! :)

Enlarged size shows up the uneven Pt. de Gaze ground badly, though! It is SO hard to keep it even. I need a Lot more practice at it. It is worked needle away - from the bottom up. You get 3 twists on one row, and 2 twists on the other, so it is somewhat uneven always, - but mine is more so than it should be!
