Today, just a wee progress picture on the Medallion Project.
The “legs” of the A are covered with long and short stitch, and my next task is to tackle the upper part of the A, which will also be long and short stitch in the same color of blue silk. The M will be long and short stitch as well, but in a lighter blue.
I do like this blue silk against the gold vermicelli background. I’m hoping that an outline around the letters will really “finish” the whole monogram off well. But I’m afraid it’ll be a little while before I get to that point!

And now – to work! Have a wondrous day!
