IHSW

What a great stitching weekend! I really was able to "hermit and stitch" and as a result, all the cross stitching is done. WAHOO!!!!



Now for the back stitching and the personalization. It's hard to tell from the picture, but this Damask Aida has a lovely sheen to it (shows a bit better to the right of the butterfly) and the gold seal on the diploma is done with gold blending filament.

Wow, that's such a spiffy and detailed project! Trying to get sparkle fabric to photograph right always drives me nuts, but I think you got it right here! Best of luck with your backstitching!
