I fell in love with William and Kate's wedding cake and felt compelled to stitch the equivalent.
It put me in a romantic mood, not hard to do as I'm a hopeless romantic most of the time anyway, and I searched for a similar wedding sampler design to stitch for my husband and me. I found "White Wedding" by Ellen Maurer-Stroh.
I tested several shades of silk on pure white Belfast linen. Here is my progress so far.
It's my fourth monochrome project. Even though I'm a bit of a color fanatic, I find stitching with one color, especially silk, to be meditative, relaxing, and very satisfying. I love the soft glow of creamy silk on pure white linen.
