Another explosion

I know I said I was going to get back into the rotation stitching.......but this is just so much fun! I finished couching the rest of the first center down with the Kreinik silver cord. Then I started and got the second center all stitched in. I did this a little differently and only had to couch two legs of this center. This , as a reminder, is all being done so far, in the new DMC Color Infusions Memory thread in silver. It is very easy to work with. As I take it off the plastic, I run it over one of my thread straighteners to get rid of the kinks. It lays in place very easily and I do use my laying tool to keep them in line at the center hole.

It already looks like 4th of July! I'm glad you are having a blast with this piece since it is so much fun for me to watch develop.
