Suz---- June Update

Progress has continued on the Wedding Piece.

little details, of which more will be added


 leaves, and twirly branches

within the V of the lace frame, I added rows of buttonhole lace in a pale, pale, variegated pink floss

a few more flower clusters, some fine details, and beads will be added

Is it getting too busy?

on the right side, another casalguidi branch has been added..........yes, it's even larger than the first one......I must be casalguidi crazy!

a little closer look at the bullions.

I love bullions!

Hmmmm, maybe I should add a few more on the left side. What do you think?

Well, that's all the stitching for this week. I've been gardening and doing a few Gelli prints, which you can see here

Hope you've had a creative week.

Hugs from Suz

Really beautiful, all the textures. Gorgeous!

The handwork on this piece is wonderfully organic. I love those cascades of cast on roses.

gee, I'm sorry you don't like it, Cy.

Suztats said...

Thanks Deborah. It's finally starting to match the picture in my imagination, but a bit more to go yet.

Suztats said...

Those cascades will be appearing all over the wedding piece! I love to make them. Thanks Barbara.
