Column Two, Pattern 9

This is Aurora Borealis revisited by Marnie Ritter.....been a while since I worked on it, but today, it was time to get the rotations going again.  Pattern 9 started off with Silk n colors set up to make the petals of the pattern.  Then Madeira is wrapped under these diagonals to create the shiny circles.  Last, basketweave is done in two different colors--one down the center and the other filling in the two spaces of the petals end to end.  A very clever stitch combination!
