Portholes # 11


This Porthole has a decidedly Victorian feel ... as I focused on the lady in the centre patch and extended it outward. I added a bunch of red glass flowers and a piece of pretty lace (which really jumps out contrasted on the dark green) Above her is a bower of LD Bullion Tip flowers. On the left I used Ribbon Floss with a metallic thread to create the fan-type seam...which began with a zig-zag row of chain stitching and filled in from there with LD stitching. At the bottom a row of Chevrons overlayed with a row of Herringbone ... both with the point pieces embellished.
