Progress At Last !

This past week I’ve been working on Enchanting Lairs Celtic Wedding Blessing and I finally see the end and feel like I made good progress. As you know this is for my sister and needs to be ready to return to Australia with her on the 26th of this month so I need to push on now.

Here’s a pic as it was at the end of last week.

Last week

And this is the progress I’ve made on it this week.

This week

I’ve just one long border to do and then some crosses in the corners done in either beads or kreinik metallics. I’m not sure which and if you want to throw your bit into the mix just let me know in the comment box.
The choice is purple and white beads or purple and white metallic threads.

My one other update is on my biscornu or what will be one when I get it finished. Its only a small update on last week. I’m really loving this one. I’ve used Belle Soie silks by Crescent Threads. Tulip and Icing to be exact and I’m stitching on a gold linen, not sure which as I’ve lost the package but will find and let you know.

Biscornu so far

Thats it for this week.

Happy stitching,
Ruth

    Lovely progress and it looks so beautiful. Personally, I would go with beads as that might make it a bit "dressy" considering this is a wedding sampler :)The biscornu is coming up great too.

    It's lovely visiting your blog, Ruth! I do love your Celtic Wedding Blessings Sampler. It's so beautiful and I know your sister will love it! My son and his fiancé are getting married in September and this is just the thing I have been thinking of stitching for them. I can't wait to see yours finished. Your biscornu is coming along beautifully… I love Belle Soie Tulip ~ such a lovely shade of red! Blessings always in stitches…Lizzy
