Working on this cute little Garden Prince. I can’t wait to finish the entire design.
Stitched on antique white 28ct. cashel line. Just Nan Garden Prince was a rare retired design. I am thinking of making this into a pretty little ornament’s tassel with only pearls , mill hill seed beads and Swarovski crystals. Most important, the colors must match well with the design itself. So here’s the final result!
Picture taken when the ornament was hang up instead of placing it down. I add a golden cap to add more bead tassels. The ornament tassel is also one of the eye catching thing other than the gold frog charm and the design itself. About 25 pieces of rose, light pink and olive color Swarovski crystals are used to make the tassel. Too bad, my Panasonic Lumix camera didn’t managed to catch the sparkle effect from the crystals. ~ Now, I have created another interesting ornament! 🙂
Also, I’ve stitched another rare design. Just Nan Christmas Keepsake. Stitched on 28ct. cashel linen.
Working or stitching this design is a challenging thing for me. There are so many different stitching methods in this design. For example, the scotch stitches was difficult. It took me an hour to get it done. The design must be work on an ivory or antique white linen and the scotch stitches must be in dmc B5200 white color. So a fairer whiter floss against a more ivory background. What an Eye Challenging job for me!
I managed to complete this design the next day late evening. A bronze Christmas painted wreath charm is stitched on the center of the design. There are a total of 8 roses in this design. 4 smaller ones are stitched with petite stitches and the other 4 larger roses are stitched at corners. Can you see them? There are also 4 small flower stitched with gold metallic floss.
