Queen of the Needle is done!


Here is the full picture of Queen of the Needle by Just Nan - finished attaching the beads last night.  It was hard to get a good picture of the whole thing, so I've also posted some close ups of some of the details.



A close up of the verse on the picture.  The white line is a fan vault stitch, and the hearts are a darning stitch.


A close up of the white flowers with a floral satin stitch and some beading, along with the purple flowers with the eyelet stitch in the middle.


A close up of the beading in the white "lacy" area at the bottom of the picture.  There are pink "pearly" beads and some tiny white beads.


These were some unique stitches to make flowers that look like roses....they were interesting!  Also some satin stitches for the pale pink divider, and some daisy satin stitches to make the white flowers.


Just some beads as the centers of the flowers, and the blue line is something called a cashmere stitch.
