Grr.... the frustration!
I had to unpick the border of roses as well as the 3 border rows on the right hand side, because I was 1 stitch out!  It took me 3 hours because I had to be very careful not to snip the canvas.  Thank goodness for the James Bond movie festival on TV!  It gives me something to glace at while occupied with such a mind-blowing, boring and frustrating task.

To save my sanity, I also worked on the chaise lounge kit Jeanene of Everything Laser has cut for the DAME club in Durban.  Here it is in Milady's bedroom bay window; upholstered in silk dupion fabric to match the curtains and quilt.  There is also a matching bolster cushion as well as the cushions I embroidered to match the rug and carpet.  A vintage lace collar in a triangular shape (which I didn't want to cut up) makes a lovely lace shawl to drape over the back of the chaise, which also adds interest when viewed from the outside in. Milady's glasses are lying next to a photo album I purchased at the Kensington Miniature Festival in 2009.  Now I want to make a spectacle case for the glasses!
