The design of his first belt consisted of his 3 initials stitched in groups of 3 shades of a color. I couldn't photograph the belt in its entirety, so here is a series of photographs.
The new belt reflects Arthur's interest in the New York Giants football team. He loves them, except when he is screaming at them!
Since Needle Nicely has cornered the market on navy medici, that is what I am using to stitch the background. The elements are going to be stitched in DMC perle cotton. I took it to stitch on while I was in Dallas for the recent wholesale market. Pitiful progress!
These segments start from the right side of the canvas and proceed through the middle and then the left side. Arthur has been very understanding in my lack of progress, but I really would like to finish this before January. We'll see if that happens!
EDIT: The red APC monogram doesn't show up well in my photograph, but it shows up in person.
