One down

The inner border is now completely stitched! I have started the outside border. First I counted out 19 threads north of the first one. Then I put in a diagonal line to the east point, and worked my way around the entire outside. Then I laid down three strands of the Medici, and have been working the Upright Gobelins over that. I also put in the Fleur-de-Lis on the East inside border.

The space between the two outer diamonds is filled with fleur de lis shapes? Fascinating!

Hi Pat! Your iris is just lovely, love your choice of the Burden(?) stitch for texture and sheen. Really beautiful all around.
