If you noticed, there is a big gap in the work progress as depicted in my photos. Those were the critical moments when I was working on my own well into the night and told myself I would photograph my work first thing in the morning. Well, that didn't happen, so here's what I have managed to record.
|Last minute details take shape. Lips stitched in stria-shaded padded satin stitching, jacket studded with French knotted paillettes, and work begins on brick wall.|
|Cutwork along bricks is almost completed. The tiny shoe is formed of pueter colored kid leather complete with tiny buckle and strap. Along the brick ledge is S-ing technique of rough purl and bright check alternately.|
|The completed work with added shading to legs and wall.|
|Closeup of bricking and details of sock. Note the lapel is stitched with plate, one of the advanced stitch requirements.|
