I decided to start in on the leaves at the bottom of the circle and am using four strands of Splendor to do stem stitches that follow the drawn lines on each one. I like how the direction has changed the sheen on them! Even though the leaves are not the focal point, there are a lot of them and I knew what stitch I wanted for them. I am still selecting other stitches for other areas. By putting these in, it will help me make better choices for the others.
