Work on Wednesday - Tapestry still going....

WOW: Work in progress On Wednesday

I've spent more time this past week working on my Golden Tapestry.  Over 500,000 stitches so far.  Sixteen blocks are done - the top half of the main design is stitched.
My girl doing a Vanna White impression with the tapestry.  :-)

I am still in search of gold silk for the tapestry border.  I've order several swatches of silk fabric from online places.  All of these patches, except one, have the word "gold" in their color name.  I am having a hard time finding the silk that seems to fit just right.
Not the right shade of gold yet.
Here are some progress photos of the tapestry since the last post:

Four blocks done on right quarter.

Two more done on next row.

Second row complete.

Top quarter row stitched.

Bottom quarter row stitched
Top right quarter of design stitched together.

One day it will be like this...

That's my WOW work-in-progress for this Wednesday.  I'm sharing with Esther's Quit Blog for her WOW blog link party.

Happy Stitching!
