What are you most proud of? That I completed it and had it framed the week before the wedding! What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you can, give yourself time, it takes longer than you think - it took me over 4 months of intensive stitching. The original calls for it to be done on 32 ct linen. Since there are minimal fractional stitches, you can get away with doing it on 18 ct aida - and it saves you going mad if you dont like working on Linen. Sit in plenty of light where and when you can - there are multiple colours of white in this, and lots of small beads on the hem. Not good around small children!
