I went to the rotation canvas and looked through to decide where to start and the Oriental Poppies won! The reason being is this is so close to being finished, and I love the color in this one. So I started out with the single strand of DMC Fil and worked more on the background black work pattern on the left. I then decided to put in the veins on all the leaves following the instructions. Last, I started filling in the bottom leaf with the long stitches called for. I am using a variegated thread so the leaves are going to be varying in color.
Thanks for all the nice comments on the Lace Fan. I appreciate reading all of them and am very pleased this piece was interesting to everyone.
