You see the light gold threads at the top?
That was my new start. - Not fun frogging one over one stitching!
I have had Deep Peace in my stash for years. I decided it was finally time to stitch it.

Unfortunately the only picture included is very small one on the cover. I have enlarged it here so you can see the detail.
I started on the initial as the instructions suggest.
Not much to show. I had more before I realized I was following the wrong chart. It is all one over one. I was using the smaller overlay and didn't realize that everything was shown one over two! Ugh! Lots of frogging! I was considering buying another piece of fabric and starting over, but the materials for this project were quite pricey, so I thought it best to do the frogging.
One of the things that I am apprehensive about is working with real metal. It calls for gold purl for parts of the initial, as well as real gold and silver paillettes. These were a special order and I am still waiting for them.
I am nervous about this one! I really want to do a good job on it.
Well, I will let you know how it goes. Hopefully there will be no more frogging in my future!
