I decided to pull out Sharon B's Sumptuous Embroidery class project to show Algerian eye. It is a great open work stitch and I think it will look good in that upper corner. But four stitches aren't enough!!!
I am having a hard time with the skirt pattern. I ripped it out several times before I got it correct. At least I hope it is correct. I know the pattern on the left is incorrect and will have to come out. I am not sure what is next but it may be the dreaded veil. I think people had trouble with it so I am not looking forward to it. Although it is so lovely once it is stitched....
Well, I have been busy with life but managed to keep stitching on Elizabeth. I need to get her veil in before I add the next layer of background which I think will go faster. I am working on her skirt but I think I read the chart incorrectly. I will move to the right side and see if I can get a rhythm going before I return to the left side.
I am so glad the sleeves are done! I did a quick scan of what I have left and I started to get depressed. Lots of background, the skirt, veil and jewels. I do like how she is looking but will I get done by May?
