I stitched the dirt and then used 4 mm ribbon to do the tulip leaves and flowers. This one is all done!

It is finished!

Rose on Rose is now in a 7.5 square Sudberry box. I put gold lame behind it and when the sun hits it, it shows through the canvas.

I added ribbon and beads in the center-both Mill Hill seed and bugle beads. Last, I finished the border by adding beads to join the bands. This was a fun, fast stitch!

Border and beads

I have finished the border with my modification. I have added all the interior beads and am showing only half of the design so you can see all the beads.

The Border

Working on the border. First a cross with the pearl, then one with Kreinik and then rice stitch over the first cross.

Friday, March 8, 2024

Lots more!

The overall shot shows the outside border of cross stitches with Kreinik crosses over some of them. I am changing the outside border to create this shape instead of adding another design in the center of the N, S, E, and W sides. The second photo is a closeup of the center design that shows the beads adding to the centers all around.
