Imperial Topaz 2/23

February 23, 2009

 

 2/23 The closer I get to finishing the more I love this project.  The shading done in the corners is done with the same three threads and the same needleblending as the shaded areas inside the rhodes stitches.

The gold serpentine areas are the result of large cross stitches done in #16 Krienik braid (gold) with over 1, over 2 diagonal stitches in some of the corners of the cross stitch.  This is an area that looks better from a distance than up close while you’ re stitching. The corner L’s are the same gold cross stitches with all four corners covered with the over 1, over 2 diagonals.

Now I am on to the border……..
