I think I'm through with the Tudor project.
I could put a stitched outline around the center motif in addition to the crimped metal band--at the same time, I think I may have enough glitz. I'm going to leave it sitting up in the frame across the room for a couple of days to see how I feel. At the moment, I feel like I'm through.
In fact, I feel so much like I'm through that I'm planning to put away the "stuff" that accumulates as you work a project. Because there's been so much metal in this one, that means my goldwork tools need to be stashed as well.
The plan after finishing this was to start assembling things this afternoon. The plan has changed. I think I need a nap.
