2008 First Happy Dance

Wow, did I just post a few of days ago? I find it hard to believe that I'm posting again so soon. Then again, remember I said I'll have a finish soon? Well, I kept my word and I can't wait to share my first happy dance of 2008 with all of you. A little late, I know, considering that it's almost May - halfway through 2008. Anyway, here it is... drumroll... ^.^

Design: Blond Beauty Cameo
Designer: Passione Ricamo
Fabric: 28 count Silkweaver's Wildberry Sparkle Reflections Lugana
Fibers: DMC & Rainbow Gallery Treasure Braid Petite
Beads: Mill Hill Beads

Did I leave anything out? If so, feel free to ask. Thank you so much for all your compliments on my "L". Carol R, I didn't use the recommended floss or fabric. There wasn't any given. The designer did however suggest Vikki Clayton's hand dyed silk and since I like the blue and red on the sample piece, I decided to stick with that but with a twist of my own - variegated floss. I picked the fabric not only because I thought it would look nicer than just plain white but I wanted to give it an "aged" look. I'm very pleased with the result so far :)

This looks fantastic. The fabric is perfect. I love PR designs, but have yet to complete one.

Congratulations & happy dance...
thank you for leaving comment in my blog. Did I reply on the silk fray when I used 2 strands initially. I am using one strand partly have to be careful with my yardage coz i do not buy extra skeins of Belle Soie, what I am using was purchase from Jean during sales. You are pretty fast. I am here and there a bit, trying to finsih the middle section. Yours do have an antique and classic look.
