I did have several shots etc to show last week hoping to post them in the evening, but last Wednesday turned out to be crazy and I didn't get home 'til about 11pm and then went to bed! However, I think today's collection of pix should make up for the wait.=)
Working from top to bottom now, here are some detailed shots. As you can see from the lower ones, I changed the skirt beading from the pattern's gold one, to shades that followed the colour changes on the over-skirt. The reason for this is simply that, on some of the trinket pieces, the gold simply didn't show up very well against the yellow stitches, so I felt that yet more gold beading would detract even further from the jewels and so needed to tone that down a little.
So, next week will see WIPW featuring progress on the peacock feather and I've already got the threads and fabric out for a bright scatter cushion cover in cross stitch for later on. I've actually got several projects planned over the next couple of months (a few cards needed for a start), so there should be a decent amount of variety to look forward to, from cross stitch and blackwork, through freestyle/thread painting to stumpwork.
You can see what the rest of the WIPW-ers have been up to over on Pintangle. Do take a look as there are some great projects being worked!
