More on the right

I worked more on the right side.....notice how it is starting to list that way! I stitched in another small rose to create the needed balance and then filled in the background down to that point. It does not look like much but it does take some time to get long and short stitches filled in even with the Silk and Ivory. I do outline the petals in split stitch first and then come back and fill in the stitches on each petal.

You are doing a great job with it as when I look at it, it looks dimensional.

I am really looking forward to see this one all completed :-)

It is coming along nicely. I know how much work those flowers are and there's a lot of background, too, but it is so beautiful, it is all worth it.
