Wedding gift – Back cover finished!

At last, I seem to be nearing completion on this.  Just waiting for the ring box lid to dry onto the base and will cover the body of the box to-night.

I wanted the back of the Wedding book to be as attractive as the front and had this Dragonfly hovering around in the wings :}  (Just the job)

Must look for a nice gift box to present it properly and to protect all those beads!!

The finished half-cross stitch page, which is very heavily beaded, is also finished and backed with plain Thai silk, I still have enough time to insert a little personal message if I use the remainder of the brocade to create a little pocket on this page – or maybe an envelope??

Finished pageI must admit I’ve loved doing this little project, but I’m itching to experiment with some more contemporary needlework and possibly create more 3 dimensional work in the near future.

Will post as  I play!

Hoping you are all enjoying your stitching and are staying free of those seasonal coughs and colds!
