Half the fourth one

Last night was stitching group and I worked on another present so you will have to wait a while to see it. But tonight, I got back to work on the fourth leaf. The rows are numbered on this one from the bottom up. The bottom right row one is all copper and then row two adds copper mixed with black. Row three has copper/black and gold as does four with some regular copper. Row five is all copper. Remember I am pulling each row with the pearl first and then removing it and adding the Kreinik braids back in. Did you notice the empty spaces at the bottom of the points of the leaves again?

The black adds more interesting, doesn't it? I would not have thought to mix metallics and black myself. Just more of Betty Chen Louis' magic!

And yes, we did notice the empty star points. Hurry up and stitch this so we can see what happens there!!!!
