Here is the over-all view. There are only about four seams left to Embellish!!!! Nearly there!!!
This is a close-up portion of The Blue Ribbon Seam...full of beads and crystals!!!
Beaded Tassel Trim!This seam was so much fun! It started as a simple chain stitch in brown...Way too boring! I had a scrap piece of the hot pink silk left-over from stitching bunny's garden, and decided to weave that through the chain. Better. But, something was still missing? Hum? I was stringing some beads for another area, when it occurred to me to add a beaded tassel fringe to this chain & ribbon! That was it! Eureka!
The Fan in almost full Regalia! I have three seams left to do!!!
Featherstitch with beading...this section is still a work in progress...more feathering and beading needed!
This is a close-up portion of The Pink Ribbon Seam...full of beads and freshwater dyed pearls!!!
At bottom, the Beaded Wheat seam!
Well, I just wanted to keep everyone upto date. My goal was to finish last night. I stitched until 3AM on Sunday, and 2AM last night. Sunday night was productive late night stitching. Last night not so much! I hated everything I had stitched from 11:30 TIL 1 AM,
then spent an hour 'un-stitching!'
But, in the morning, it all looked wonderful. I fixed what I had not liked last night!
And, it's nearly done. So my goal was off by 24 hours! It will be done tonight!!! :~)
