The new upper facade.
This is how all of the individual pieces look on a flat background. The top half of the casket front is not flat. A great deal of thought and planning has gone into how I can mount each piece to the wood casket when the time comes. There are still several edges to be finished on the actual embroidery as well as additional pieces to be stitched that will be pasted to the edges at the end.
The old upper facade. The original plan had been to embroider on top of the white window surrounds.
But I knew the white trim was never going to make me happy!
I am happy now.
