As requested… because you have all been so patient for so many years now…

Sorry, there’s a shadow on the left side… the sun was coming in the window.  There’s stitching detail that’s not visible in the image: the gold lazy daisy leaves are gold braid, the dragon wings are veined with the same, and the large “T” is couched with it as well.

The design is about 2/3 finished… the vine border will be embellished with Magnifica beads in a dark blue and deep cranberry.  I’m not sure what background for the walled city…I’m thinking a seascape for some reason.  The bird in the “To” block will be colorful: warm tones for contrast against the blue background.  The dragons get lots of embellishment yet… they look very bald!  The cloister scene border gets beads as well.

The size is 14-1/2″ W  X  21-3/4″H  The fabric is 28-count cream Glasgow…

Moment of truth

I am so loving the updates on this amazing design! I don’t care if it takes another 5 years to be finished. The day it is released – it is going to be mine!! It is just simply spectacular!

Sorry for the pause… I was under the weather for a few days.

I did finally manage to design enough of the corner of the scene to feel I should stop and actually do some stitching to make sure of my color choices:

A little note: I’m planning to add flowers to the greenery… but I’m not happy with how it looks with just plain cross stitches on the computer screen.  So I’ll be experimenting as I stitch.   Now that I’d like to do some stitching,  I need the color symbols translated into black and white glyphs so I can print it out and read it. (I can’t stitch from a computer screen.  I’ve tried, trust me.)

Because this piece is so huge, I’ve broken it up into various areas so I can work with smaller “satellite” files as I design.  I love my little G4, but alas, it…
