Finishing Lesson #2

I finished Lesson #2.  The top white area is worked in blanc Soie d alger in a round eyelet stitch and then the Anchor yellow cross stitches are wrapped.  To the right of that is Kreinik in a Square boss stitched with wrapped cross stitches.  Below that is the Medallion w with Smyrna crosses around it and lastly, the large area on the bottom is done in a Saint John's stitch with more yellow wrapped crosses.  Note how each side is a mirror color image of the other.
Nana has asked to see the back side of this piece.....this is an unusual request, but I took a photo of it
for you......I am not of the school that the back has to be perfect, obviously, but here it is.

Wow, this looks so good and thank you for showing us also the back. Sometimes I love looking at things the other way and to me your back looks perfect. I can see now how the red has its own flow like a snake. For some reason I think I understand a little better now how you did it.
