Progress on Painted Pony Queen of Hearts

Other side of underskirt

Possible background stitch 

Full view as of Friday afternoon

Edge across the bottom
I am never sure how to stitch these edges.  Here is a sad looking satin stitch.  I think I could do better.
Black bead in strap stitch

I didn't have a bead that matched the silk I used to basketweave the background of the underskirt.  I thought I would give black a try.  I like it.

I stitched some more after dinner.  I stitched a Rhodes heart with Neon Rays.  The wing stitch is an Alicia's lace variation.  The diamond is Kreinik #8 and the upright stitch is Treasure Braid.  
More done after dinner.  I stitched the crown with Kreinik #8 using cross stitches and a red bead for the jewel.


  1. The Queen is looking very regal with all of her various stitches! Beautiful stitching, Stephanie!

  2. Thanks, Melinda. Looking forward to you weekly post.
