The final touches
I finished the back stitch and whip stitching across the top between the petals. I then moved below the flowers and did two rows of the braided chain stitch in Snow. That separates the fan itself from the spokes. The final touch was to make the twisted cord tassel and adding the bead and then anchoring it through to the back of the piece. It will go to the framer tomorrow and you will see what magic they work when I get it back. Thanks for watching this one and for the appreciation of Marilyn's designing skills. It was my pleasure to create this piece and I enjoyed the different elements to this piece.
When I started this piece, I knew this would be one for my own collection. I have stitched a couple of other fans, have my husband's grandmother's wedding fan framed, and will hopefully create a new arrangement with all of them.
