Blooming nightmare

The blooms are definitely a nightmare. I have just barely started on the arbor and it is s-l-o-w going. I'm figuring this is going to be an anniversary gift since the wedding is long over. I absolutely have no time to work on this piece since my daughter and SIL live in the in-law apt on our house. My daughter comes over often and this piece is a surprise so I can only work on it at night in my bedroom and I'm usually too tired to work on it, lol.
So this is what the whole piece looks like at this point.

I decided at one point to take a break from the flowers and did some beading. This is the bottom of her dress.


This is where I'm at with flowers and have a lllooonnnggg way to go.


I am so behind on reading blogs. I'm trying to catch up but having a hard time with it.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

It is looking great. I am sure the nightmare will turn into a dreamy cherished piece
It is hard trying to play catch up on blogs once you get behind

Great progress - it looks stunning.

It's looking gorgeous. I can understand the flower nightmare :)
Maybe you should just tell your daughter that you are working on it.

It is such a pretty piece, but I can imagine how time consuming those flowers are. It will be a definitely keepsake when it's finished.

I soooooo understand being behind. I was really behind on blogs and emails for a while in June and early July. I was caught up again, till yesterday when I was sick. So now I'm a little behind. Love your OUAT. It's lovely, even if the flowers are a pain. It's gonna be gorgeous!! Here's hoping you get some more time to work on it.

Oh, that must be frustrating trying to keep it a secret from your daughter! But, oh, will she be delighted when she sees this beauty :)

It really is looking great, but I sure can see that it would be a challenge to stitch! It makes it doubly tough to have such limited time on it. Good Luck!!

That's quite a bit of progress on your limited stitching time. :) It's looking beautiful. Love the beads.
