Gold and beads

I have added the gold veins and tips on the leaves with Kreinik #8 002.  Then I added white Magnifica beads 10009 with Kreinik #4 100.  Last, I added the Delica gold beads with Kreinik #4 002.

All of the greens!

All of the greens are in the leaves.  I used Neon Rays 33, 34, 35, 84, and 85, Trebizond 726 and 742.  Next I am going to add the gold in the leaves.

All of the green colors

I have some of all of the green leaf colors stitched in.  There are still several leaves to finish but I am making progress.  I am working the perimeter first, which is unusual.  I am considering it the background and I like to get the background done before adding all of the other elements in.  I can rest my working hand on the Evertite frame so I am not touching the canvas at all.  Notice that among the leaves are white and gold dots, two colors of berries, and gold in the leaves.  These will also all be worked before I start the rest of the inner circle.  I will try to post most days but have a lot of things going on so it might be a bit erratic.

Lots more leaves

I am continuing to stitch all of the leaves.  All of the gold green ones are done in Neon Rays 85.  Next to most of those is Neon Rays 33.  I then started the other green next to the Neon Rays 35 but am using Accentuate 742 to stitch them as I needed another green not available in the Neon Rays.

Made it!

I finished all of the blue!  I also finished the lighest green leaves in the Neon Rays 35 and have started the golden green ones.

At the bottom

I have made it to the bottom of the blue circle.  Just a little bit more time and I will have all of the blue finished!

More blue and some green

I have continued working the blue rim but also added some Neon Rays 36 for the lightest green in the leaves on the top right.

Margaret, look at the comments on the Spring Fever stitch guide for some ideas to help your finger.
