This one is better

I put white behind the canvas tonight and you should be able to see this a lot better! Did you notice the green dot up at the top right? Good! I took two strands of Lacquered Jewels in color470 and started outlining all around the petals of the roses and the leaves. It is a gray black shiny so hopefully you can see it up next to the black, and it definitely pops on the actual petals. You can also see where I quit.....where the thread is laying on top of the bottom rose and going up to the needle holder. I hope to finish all of this tomorrow. We are supposedly going to get somewhere between 6-12 inches of snow! I will just have to stay in and stitch then!

Gosh, it does show up nicely, the gray outline, I mean.

Hope you get lots of good stitching time and less of a storm than predicted.
