Here in the picture is not finished actually . And all those blue lines are gone after wash.
Looks pretty OK even if I changed the tread shades like usually I do .
Anyway I did learn a valuable lesson doing this design : never try to switch the beads without taking in consideration the size of the design.
I find the bugle beads are a bit to big for the size of the drawing and so in the middle have been using smaller bugles (some china stuff) which of course was to small so need lots of improvisation to cover spaces.
Hope to come with an updated picture o this one soon.
Happy crafting all
your stitching is so immaculate, as you say wall space can be a problem, I have so many framed pieces I have no room for, am thinking about removing them from the frames and well I do not really know what to do with them bit they would take up much less room unframed.ReplyDelete
Oh... Margaret, maybe just store them in the frame somewhere and rotate them on the wall . I have a lot of Half cross stitch ( gobelin ) which is not framed and I tell you is start to deteriorate because when I show them to ppl they pull and touch . The ones in the frames are clean and in same state as when I finish them .Delete
This is so pretty with your colour choices, Renata. What I've decided to do with my framed pieces is to put up a chair rail trim at about 5' high all around my art room. It will be a little wider than some so that I can put up my framed work. Not only will this make a great way to keep my work visible and not take up every wall in the small house we have, but I can put others work there, too, and be inspired. It will be a project for this winter, and I'll probably paint my art room at the same time.ReplyDelete
This is a very good idea Suz , I will be thinking for something the same to match my siteroomDelete
