Made it!

I finished the lower right outside border!  I wasn't sure I could get that much stitched in one evening but I made it!  Now I will start the top outside curve.  Did you notice all the away waste knots?  Lacquered Jewels is a fine thread and then it is also slippery.  I am doing L and X stitches to secure the start and end of each thread to secure them.

That is a lot of work for one evening! Especially with a thread that needs careful securing when you start/stop a length. And I always use shorter lengths of it because it tangles on me. I am impressed!

I didn't realize that there is a top border to the fan. Now I can't wait to see what happens there!

Stitch faster....
