I'm getting so close on this now. Just the background to fill in with the 4-way filler stitch. I've done the first small section, but there's still a reasonable amount to go. But once it's done - so is the ornament.
I'm also going to have to clean up the back a bit - I tried very hard to be good and not carry threads across the back of open canvas - but I got a bit sloppy in places and here and there I can see a silver or gold peeping through where it isn't supposed to.
I am hoping to get this finished by the 15th when I have class through the SNS called Desert Diamonds starting up and I really want to keep up with the class. Really looking forward to it too.
