The leaves and the flower

I finished filling in the Reverse Mosaic with one of the other yellow Splendors as the center is covered by the flowers in the garden, and I ran out of the pale yellow. I then used the 7 mm River Silks and started the leaves on each end and did the tips for placement. I need to finish shaping the leaves, but I really had to put in a few loops of the Gloriana Monet's Pond ribbon to see what they are going to look like.

That's pretty cool up close how the reverse mosaic makes a faint checkerboard effect with the light on it. Not conspicuous, but interesting.

This is going to be lovely, Pat. I love how you finished the reverse mosaic with a darker shade of yellow because you are running out of the right thread and that area will be hidden by the "flowers." Very clever!

The ribbon embroidery is going to look great.
