Wow -- that's an impressive piece of work.  Do you have a picture of the whole length of that side so that we can see how the parts all fit together?

Wow  Shocked

That's some very impressive work. Do you have to concentrate a lot ot get your stitches so neat - or is this something you can work on while your watching TV?

It looks like it was created by a machine or something. It's fab  Cheesy

Thanks! It was rather silly of me not to put a photo of the whole thing in - I'll update it with one soon, though. I can't get good lighting for photos at night - well, for small things, I can put them under my ott light. For something this long, I need some sunlight!

Mmm. Can I do it while I watch TV? I think I've watched a movie before while doing that, but you don't really "watch" the movie - you more or less just listen to it and glance up now and then. Usually, I listen to music or chat with friends or sometimes I listen to books on tape when doing handwork. I prefer those to watching something.

Novastarlet - nope, not a stitch on a machine. You can't get satin stitch that looks like that on a machine, actually!! I don't think so, anyway. I'm not bragging on the stitch - it's actually the raised part that wouldn't look so good if done on machine!!

Thanks for the compliments!! It did take hours upon hours. And I still have the other side to finish!

I'll post a full shot as soon as I can.

Thanks for the compliments, everyone! It's encouraging! Now I think I really WILL get cracking on the other half of it.

Here's a link to the whole thing, so you can see the individual elements in context:
