I know, I know....I'm overdue for an update on Royal, which I assure you I have been diligently working on. Small problem though...I seem to have misplaced my camera! Doh! I know I was going to take it to a wedding about 10 days ago, then opted to bring the husband's (SO not used to calling him that yet!) instead as his is better than mine. I put it somewhere safe since we were on our way out the door...I just as yet have not discovered where that actually is.
I've been working my way up her "back" area, filling in holly sprigs and white trim. This is where the Dreaded Wisper Floss is supposed to come in...but as I absolutely loathe working with it, I've opted to use plain white DMC floss instead. I actually opted to skip the Wisper on ALL of the previous Queens as well so Royal will fit right in.
I also did an inventory of the bling to make sure I had what I need to finish....for some reason, I've got doubles of all the beads, and I don't have one of the metallics. How did THAT happen? I'll have to make a run to the local needlepoint store, as they generally have Kreiniks in stock. I would have done some of the metallic stitching except, of course, what I needed is what is missing. Grrr.
