Not quite.....almost!

I thought I would get this done tonight, but the best laid plans.......Anyway, I did do the crescents on the vertical diamonds with the navy Kreinik and added in the beads on the sides of each. Then I started the background with two strands of DMC 822. When I first got home from work, I added another coat of gold spray to the box it will go on as well. Now, I know I will finish it tomorrow night!
The Kick Back and Stitch patterns are great to work with as they list a multitude of color combinations and you can create your own as well. Picture this done in purples, blacks, off whites, or even reds and greens as a Christmas ornament.

Jane wants the pink and silver one!

Judy may have this, although I have to say it cost me a pang to let her. It's really pretty, Pat. Someone is going to have quite a birthday treat.

Why is it that all I get for MY birthday is--maybe--a couple of cards and, if I'm really lucky, some chocolate turtles?
