Seven Trip Herringbone

On Lara's Wedding Ribbons I first worked the 7 trip Herringbone above the heart and Amadeus.  I used  3 ply of Gloriana, Monet Pond, DMC 499, 157 for two runs, 3848, another 157, and lastly the Kreinik gold.  Next I am working on the borders.  I did elongated cross stitches on top of the Neon Rays using three ply of 340, then cross stitches on top of those in 3848, 3 ply.  Last I have started the eyelets using 3 ply of 340.  All of this is on the left border and I will do each side completely before moving to the next side.

I didn't realize there were so many shades of blue in this piece. It's very pretty.
