You know how some projects seem to go on, and on, and on? Well this was true for my Queen Sofia project. But tonight, I FINALLY finished the entire piece!!! How good it feels to say that and get it crossed off my UFO list. This project was definitely a challenge. The first major challenge was picking a completely different pallet of colors, threads, beads and fabric from the original. The second challenge was assembly of the many components…the toughest of which was the little thimble shoe. But I am truely happy with the end result:
Last time I posted about this piece (here) back in November, I had just finished the stitching. As I worked on the piece, I had decided it needed some “bling”. I added lots of Swarovski crystals and some beads. Just enough “bling” but not overwhelming amounts. And lucky for me my friend Sandie had the perfect shade of plum silk that she let me use to line my bag and all the accessories (thanks Sandie!).
So, does this count as a single finish or nine (one for each component)?
