Moving right along

I just wandered all over the place on this tonight!  I worked across the top for a while, and moved on the Kreinik gold all the way around the largest part of the ribbon.  Next, I did the rest of the banner on the left side and moved down to work across the bottom some more.  Anne asked why I did my knots outside of the borders of the painted canvas.  When I am using a very slippery thread such as Patina or when I know I will be matting a piece such as the Lace fan, I will make my L knot outside.  I could make it in an area that is going to
be covered by the stitching, but since no one will ever see it, I just start and go.

Very cute! Those stripes are very shiny and quite dimensional.
