Here's a closer view of that fleur d'Lyon. I was going to do this in a satin stitch but I am trying to get as much done as quickly as I can, so I returned to the cross stitch over waste canvas - just because it is a technique I am familiar with, and I haven't done much satin stitch. Ho hum. Need more hours and less responsibilities - anyone want 4 kids for a couple for weeks while I get this finishe?
However, I am still enjoying the process and will be reluctant to say goodbye to my block - I have become quite attached to it :) Now there's an idea, that would certainly fill up some space ;)
