Column D, Green column

I started Column D, the Green column.  This one is 21 threads across.  The pattern is called oval chain variation at the bottom and is worked with two strands of Waterlilies.  Then Candleight is laid across the pattern and Madiera is used to create the pattern which ties the Madiera down to complete pattern 16.  Pattern 17 is started by working the Butterflies are 3 pattern in silk and I am working on the background using one strand of Madiera in basketweave.

The greens and the butterflies are very spring-like! I hope your weather is, too.
