Suz--May Late

Hi everyone. I'm posting late again, sorry. My Sis arrived Friday for a visit and left this afternoon, so there wasn't much stitching accomplished while she was here.
I did, however, begin a new project late last week. It's for an upcoming wedding, but, in order to protect the identity of the couple, their photos were smudged.


the lace monogram



















Josephine knots cascading along the lace trims



more JK's to come

















parts of the wedding invitation is included in this embroidery

 more embellishing and embroidering will happen, and perhaps some silk ribbon embroidery as well will appear on this piece

to date, we plan an oval presentation under glass and DH will create a fabulous frame.

it's a beginning..........

and that's it for this week stitch-wise

my hands are sore from gardening/weeding/mulching, digging, and hauling flagstone and rocks
Hope you've had a creative week.
Hugs from Suz

Absolutely adore the lace monogram and how you placed it off-centre. The whole piece is lovely and will surely be treasured by the recipients.
