So vibrant and sparkly...

I had an absolute stitch-fest this weekend! Solid stitching Friday, Saturday and Sunday. And this is the result....





The colour is amazing. I love the screenshot but the reality is just plain WOW!

The sparkly corners are part 2 and stitch surprisingly quickly. Maybe because they're almost all one strand of Petite Treasure Braid and I don't have to think about railroading.

The black and orange ornament and green swags are the start of part 3 - I was dying to see how it looked. The gaps round the ornament need filling in with brown perle (the one colour I still need) and the swags aren't quite finished yet but I had to share. There's a square in the corner to do too and everything has to be repeated all round the other sides of course! So far the repeating hasn't been boring though.
