Royalty Progress

I’m making very good progress on Royalty ABC from Jeanette Douglas. I’ve taken out two rows (one was over-one crosses, and the other was a row of queen stitches, which I don’t care for). And I’ve moved one row up to help keep things balanced.

Royalty ABC (WIP)

Since I’m not planing on doing the box (which is included in the bellpull pattern), I decided to use the beads from the thread kit on the bellpull. I added two to one of the crowns:

I also added some to another row. You can also see the start of the lovely Tudor rose in the picture below.

I’m really loving this design, and I think the changes I’m making look great.
