Background in Fil

The blackwork design for the background on this piece is worked with  a single strand of DMC Fil.  I started the first step below the top bud and will work down to the bottom poppy in this design.

I love this piece, can't wait to see it finished.

The background goes in before the leaves, or are you just tired of plants right now?

It just gets prettier all the time.

Thanks! I started the background because I don't like the thread I had pulled for the leaves, and need to change it!
