HSG, It turned out just beautiful.  What a beautiful addition to your Shabbos table.  I love how your rearranged the pearls.  They look stunning clustered like that.  A beautiful piece of art. Smiley

ditto - it really is lovely.  An instant heirloom. 

edit: did you make up this pattern?  I love the entire piece but those pine cones really stand out - are they especially symbolic or just something you liked?

also that Queen - wow  that reminds me of a piece that I did last year.  so much detail!

Thank you all again! Smiley

The pinecones have no symbolism I just liked the look of them.

The pattern is a mishmosh of these ideas on here.

Here's an update on mine:



I decided to concentrate on one area at a time, I seem to make less mistakes that way and feel a better sense of progress.

I got sidetracked from my "real" big project and just finished this (it's not REALLY finished, but I'm out of time to make it any more complete than this) for a swap:



I followed a chart I made on Darklilac for most of it, but the hands I had to do on my own because they didn't turn out on the chart. I was disappointed with the shades of color in her face--I tried blending some threads, but couldn't find a good gradient of skin-tones in local embroidery thread.  Undecided

Still, it's an image I'd wanted to do for quite a while, so I'm glad it's done(-ish)!
What stitches would you recommend to have made this piece look better?

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
