Ivan the Terrible Complete
On the last day of this year I completed all the beads on Ivan the Terrible. Now I will be able to start the new year with time spent browsing my stash for my next project.
Thanks to Josa Moore I can tell you that this is a canvas by Damarj and the artist is Marj Hunter. I used the stitch guide done by Susan Portra and copyrighted 1991. Needlework designs really never get outdated.
The photo to the left is a close up of the beading. I used a two bead method I learned earlier this year for the beads on the top of the headdress. The gold tack looking items that were called for no longer exist so I improvised. I used black beading thread on these so just a hint of black would show through and make the beads a part of the headdress.
I thank all of you who follow my blog and pray that you have a Happy New Year with lots of new projects on the horizon. See you next year 🙂
