Love it, big time. Now it is time to leave it for 48 hours before it takes a trip to be framed. This will be first time I get a piece of needlepoint framed by a professional. I think I will however mount it onto foam core myself first.
My thought is a plain black frame but will see what is suggested.
The white parts of the wings are done using Patina. I let untwist a bit so as to achieve a look of feathers.
To prove a point the first thing Fiona said when she saw the wings was "wow they really look like feathers", fair made my day.
I asked her what I should start next and she said I should finish something I'd already started. My eldest is a meanie!
