Work in Progress Wednesday - Starting Mary

This miniature portrait of Mary Queen of Scots is a companion piece to Queen Elizabeth.    Mary and Bess of Hardwick are smaller and just feature the head, not the body and arms like the Queen.

I haven't completed much so far.    I basted (in white) and started on the frame around her head. 

This is one of my 17 in 2017 pieces, so I hope to make considerable progress on it in the coming weeks.


  1. Your 'Queen Elizabeth' project turned out so beautiful! I enjoyed reading your dilemmas and how you decided to work through them, very inspiring. I'm sure this piece will be just as beautiful and interesting.

  2. Hi Pamela i am looking forward to watching this one grow,your fabric looks very fine is it linen you are stitching on,hope you have a lovely day.

  3. I really liked the Elizabeth piece and this will be a nice one, too.
    I like your magnetic ladybug to park needles on.

  4. I'm sure you will :) Your embroidery works are so beautiful, and I can't wait watching this one grow...

    In stitches,

  5. I have this in my stash and would love to start on her. I will watch your progress for a bit...

  6. Wonderful start. I'm looking forward to your progress.
