Tudor Bedspread-3

I'm beginning to feel as if I am making progress on this now.  This will be the top of the bedspread.  I am hoping to have this part completed tomorrow.

I treated myself to a magnifier.  It has made the stitching a lot easier and faster, though it did have one drawback.  I found lots of missed stitches in the middle section, but they have now all been filled.  Now I can see all the holes clearly and any missed stitches are quickly spotted.  I am aiming for a finish in another week, my fingers are itching to do something different.

Glad the magnifier is working out for you. It's looking better and better and you are so dedicated to keep plugging along, even through all that solid background.

I am amazed at the intricate detailing of this. It appears to be woven by tiny fingers.

Beautiful!

This looks great. You have really made so much progress on this tedious bedspread. Of course, your work is lovely as usual...I would be blind by now. I'm glad you got the magnifier to help you...

So pretty! :0) I couldn't stitch that fine without a magnifier so don't know how you managed to without giving yourself a serious case of eye strain.

That is so beautiful, but it looks very complicated to me.
