Progress is being made. All the stitching is done in Rajmahal Art Silk threads, which are rayon threads. The stitches used for the roses are bullion knots, a french knot and lazy daisies. For the ribbon cascades, stitches are stem, straight and french knots. There’s also a ‘sort of’ lazy daisy, where instead of one catching stitch there are two.
I still have to work on the top piece, which will have more roses and a central cartouche. So, any ideas as to what it will be?
