Memorial Wreath Complete…at last
I did not make my goal of finishing Memorial Wreath yesterday. There was so much to the background. More than twice the area of the wreath design.
The photo just looks blahhhh. The Background is done in three threads. DMC #8 pearl Cotton and floss number 712 and Kreinik #8 braid #191. It took almost two full spools of the Kreinik ! That added a wonderful slight glitter to the whole background which does not show up in my photos. I have included the stitch diagram for the background stitch steps. This is by far the most intense “background” I have ever stitched.
This photo shows the background with step 3 complete.
There will be a tied ribbon attached to the bottom of the wreath when I get back to Arizona. It will be framed with a six inch circle mat…in case you were wondering about the overall shape of the project.
