I've been working on Together Forever this week and have finally got all those metallic stitches done in the balloons. I have to say though that petite treasure braid is the easiest metallic I have ever stitched with.
Here's my before and after pictures.
I'm really pleased with how much progress I've made and may even have a finish the next time I stitch on this piece. I am also going to add the bride and grooms names and the date they got married and a verse so thinking about it I may need two more weeks on it.
I didn't do a post last week as I was stitching on a piece I designed myself and I want to wait to put the pictures up until it is complete.
The next piece I am going to stitch on is a new start. It is a piece I have wanted to stitch ever since I saw it. I really struggled getting hold of the chart and I was extremely lucky when a reader of my blog called Kim said she would send it to me as it was a chart she didn't think she would ever get round to stitching. I've just gone back to the original post where she commented and unfortunately she doesn't appear to have a Blogger profile any more. The piece is Celtic Banner by Butternut Road and I can't wait to show you some progress. Kim if you are still reading my blog I'd love to hear from you.
Keep stitching and smiling
