Here's what I've finished in the overall picture.
I plan to remove the thread in the arches. I'm just not fond of that pinkish thread for vines. Also, I plan on using a royal blue for the flowers in the vines. I'm going to find a redish that is more vibrant for the flowers on the tops of the arches to balance the picture more.
Goodness, it sure needs ironing!! It's so large that it needs to be bunched up so it doesn't get dirty. The completed picture will be 21" x 21".
OH! I don't have any of the pretty seed beads or crystals added on yet, either. I always wait until the end to put those on. They really bring the picture alive with their extra colors and prettieness!
(is that a word?)
