This version is on a different fabric - this is a linen velvet from Rose Tarlow Melrose House, but the final version was done on a bright saffron colored fabric from C&C Milano with the thread colors staying the same. The colors were selected based on those used for the window pane - keeping quite true to the original was the goal.
Once again I called on my friend and digitizer Jerilee Auclair for the digitizing of this complex design and as always, I'm glad I did. Her articulation and layering of the areas worked extremely well and was a treat to watch sew on my computerized embroidery machine. As usual, I never did see the end result of my work - the completed crests went to the upholstery workroom, the stools were completed and installed. Annie and Dot tell me they were beautiful and a delight to Ms. Broccoli, thus another job well done.
