Crossroads And Borders

As I had this weekend off, I took the opportunity to get Sea Flora back out and work on her some more. I managed to get to a stopping point where I now have to decided if I am going to leave her as is, put in a border or do something else. 

Well, here she is after many hours of  Poirot  and Sherlock:




Design: Sea Flora #NC194

Designer: Nora Corbett for Wichelt Imports


Fibers: DMC Six Strand Embroidery Floss Art. 117  in B5200, 154, 156, 211, 333, 747, 754, 838,  951, 959, 964, 3371, 3746, 3807 and 3847. 


Bling Used: Mill Hill beads 00216, 00252, 02008, 02085, 03044, 40020, and 18829

As of Monday, June 15, 2015:

Bottom of Sea Flora:



There is *maybe* two inches at the very top of the piece, so not much room for maneuvering. The bottom, however, has plenty, although, since I am leaving the tail off, I suppose I could place a shell there. I will have to give it some thought before I finally make up my mind. ;)

Well, I had best be off. Work is calling. Hope everyone has a fantastic week!

Beautiful stitching and great salvation of the original needlework.
