Starting on one

I started on the leaf in the top right corner of the piece. It is worked with two strands of Lacquered Jewels in a pattern that creates rows of blocks. It was difficult to get a photo that is going to show true color as you can tell by the design at the bottom of the picture. It was worked in gold and copper. I will try and get a picture in daylight tomorrow and see if it shows up better.
This piece is by Betty Chen Louis and was taught at a seminar. You recall I am stitching this piece that a friend can no longer finish. I think it is going to be gorgeous and want to thank Barbara for keeping her instructions long enough to send them off to me!
