Remembrance by Joan Elliott
I was finally able to finish this project for my cousin. Although I rather enjoyed beading the swirls around the wings, head, and dress, I felt like the beading on the dress was never going to end. Because this took forever, I opted out of stitching the French knots all over the dress. Honestly, I just wanted it done. Also, I looked at the chart picture, and I made the executive decision that excluding the French knots would not take away from the overall effect. I need to head out to the framer to get her framed. I’m thinking a white frame (cousin’s place is blue/grey walls with white accents, i.e. baseboards, doors, cupboards, etc). Not sure if I’ll have her matted as well. I will have to look into my options and pricing.
Here are some closeups for you to enjoy.
