'Tis Done!

The Wedding Stole aka Baltic Sea Stole is finished! I'm so proud of this project. I hope the bride loves it as much as I do. I'd keep it, but I can't fit into my wedding dress anymore, won't even fit over my thighs. :)

Here's two shots I managed to get with all the poor weather that hurricane Fay has dumped on the Southeast. Please click to enlarge for a more intimate view!

  1. Zowie - that's one lucky cousin you have!! It's absolutely stunning - and all those beads - wow!

    She'd better love it or at least never, ever tell you she doesn't!

  2. WOW! That is absolutely beautiful!! The bride will be so in love with it. I don't have the patience for doing beads. You did an awesome job!

  3. That is beautiful - I have never tried beads before - that adds so much more to the lacy stitch.

  4. DANG! You've outdone yourself this time!

  5. Wow! Thank you guys so much!

  6. It is ethereal! Just lovely!

  7. This is positively gorgeous! Your cousin is sure to love it.
