Lesson in couching, 2

 I took a close up before I started today so you can better see the laid long stitches of Kreinik that are couched down, or tied down, if that makes more sense.  Then I went on and did the padded cross stitches in the center of each box using two strands of Waterlilies....same as what I used for couching.
this is the finished ornament.

This is a very pretty pastel piece but I bet in person it has a nice sparkle to it. It went fast, didn't it?
