This project is DONE!  It's or nué,  worked with Sulky threads and I'm pretty darned happy with it.

Next project

Some sketches for the next heart/milagro.  The one with the lion is my current favorite.

Finished project!

I've finished another heart/milagro. I'm particularly happy with how the edge turned out. I'll be starting the next one this afternoon. This only took twelve hours to do, so I'm very happy with the speed on it.
Happy Stitching!

Flower project

Both the new milagro, and the flower project are coming along well. The flower petals are getting backed in detached buttonhole stitch, before I add a buttonhole border. (possibly with lace picots).

I'm filling the milagro with white random stitches. (sometimes called drunken filling) I think it gives a texture and variegated sheen that suits the piece nicely.

Today will be a focus on Or Nuè.

Happy Stitching!

Attaching the wire edge

The flower petals are coming along well. I'm attaching the wire edge now. after that I'll do the embroidery on the back. I use detached buttonhole to cover the back of the stitching so that it looks good. I'll probably run gold thread  in the stitching for a bit of glitz.
