There’ll be spangles adorning the stripes of this one, and I’ll add the colonial knots where the spangles won’t fit when I’m doing the goldwork. The instructions also say to fill the stripes with satin stitch in the lighter colour of the leftmost shell, but in the photograph on the kit that clearly hasn’t been done, and it’ll be busy enough with the spangles attached, so I’m skipping that part as well.

Just two shells left for the silk embroidery now!
