I had a photo that I took before I started the last 10 steps of this piece, but it got erased when the computer crashed a week ago. So here we are with the finale.
The zigzags were created by layering Grandeur, Frosty Rays, Kreinik braid, and Fyre Werks – each thread laid next to the last one. The rectangles around that are Gobelin with dark red Grandeur every other rectangle and then silver and dark red Kreinik braid for the rest of them. The last area around the tassels was done with laid Grandeur and Kreinik braid that were tacked down with stitches over two threads using Kreinik and Marlitt. The 48 Jessicas around the center now have 5 silver beads per Jessica. That was the last step.
So number 11 of this set of 12 dodecagons is complete. I didn’t notice until I was half done that THIS one was supposed to be stitched on black canvas. Since no canvas is visible now that it’s done, I don’t think that is a problem. Coronation is the last of the set – supposed to be stitched on red and will now be on black canvas. I’ll start on that one in a week or two.
