Other areas


So I finished the line across the bottom of the bottom band with the Silk Lame Braid 18.  Then  I started beading the words.  All these words are beaded with Sundance size 15 beads.  this is going to take a while!  Then I started down the right side with the blue squares using Vineyard Silk in a scotch stitch, of course!

Oh no!


And here is where I ran out of the Vineyard Silk for the background behind the words.  I called the shop where I got the first skein and luckily she had another one of this dye lot and is mailing it to me!
Whew!

So,



I finished the gold band under the top border and added the three bats and the single spider with Kreinik #16, and his web line on the bottom right.

And more background


The basketweave on both bands is done with Vineyard Silk.  It just takes a while but I am moving right along.

And then


I completed the black outside borders down both sides.  Then, I added the gold line across the bottom and started on the background behind the words on the bottom band.
