your work on the Queen is progressing well. Thanks for pearl detail, otherwise they are hard to spot on this beautiful work and the block picture.Chitra
This portrait is getting more and more of a National Portrait Gallery item!What are the stitches on the veil? Fly or Arrow Head?What thread do you use to attache the pearls, beads and crystals? Beading or ordinary?
Thank you! The base stitches for the veil are diagonal tent stitches with one strand of silk. The gold line that makes the edge of the veil is kreinik ribbon, couched. The zig zag lines are stitched in a zig zag, like a double running stitch - out then back. The pearls, beads, and crystals are attached with white nymo beading thread. The holes in the pearls are very tiny, so I'm using a very thin needle (which means very difficult to thread!)
I'm always in awe of your stitching :) Just gorgeous!
Lovely progress.Greetings, Manuela
