Katherine Parr - Part Three

I've been painting more and stitching less these days, so it's taken a bit to get Katherine Parr's overdress finished.

After completing the first pass of the double stitch with three strands of DMC floss #677, I filled in the skipped canvas threads with a tent stitch using Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #002.

To celebrate, I worked her necklace and brooch in tent and satin stitches with Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #061.  On to her sleeves and underskirt!

That slight touch of metallic adds a nice flavor. I'll have to remember that technique!
