Last of the Trellis

I added the final sections in the trellis.  The directions called for shading some of the boxes in the trellis so I filled in all of them that needed it.  Follow it to see how it emphasizes the flowers.  This one is ready for the magic of the framer.  This picture shows, on the right, the pewter color of the Lugana fabric. 
Madonna asked about DMC Fil and I answered in yesterday's comments, but in case you did not see.  DMC Fil is used a single strand off the spool that does look like a spool of thread spool.  It also comes in Silver.  I lock it in the needle as it is a very slippery thread and use a laying tool to try and keep it flat.  It is best worked with short lengths as it shreds the gold off the cotton fiber underneath.  Hope that helps.

The shading of the trellis is very interesting. I hadn't thought of shading that way but it is quite effective on this piece. This one is going to be a lovely thing to have on your walls for a very long time!

This project looks so beautiful. I love it and can't wait to see what the framer will do with this one.
