I'm feeling better now and finally got Crown of Creation off the scroll rods and scanned:
The scan really doesn't do it justice. I did a lot of experimenting with the sparklies in this one. I started off with one strand of BF, then switched to two. Then I tried two with the carrier thread removed and finally I tried a half stitch with #4 braid. I figure the final piece is going to be so huge that no one is going to notice a bit of wonkiness!
I'm stitching her on 25 count pink Lugana, full cross 1 x 1.
