So close

Adding edging in red and purple

Making blue french knots 

Blue french knots 

Sometimes, there is less to say and more to show.

Zooming in on blue 

Looking at both layers together again 

Lots of blue french knots 

Sketching out what areas need more embroidery 

Rolling up the organdy layer 

Starting to add stitches to the linen layer 

Detail of the pink stitching 

The table, after

I thought I was so close to finishing this piece, until I looked at the two panels together again. And saw how thin some of the areas were.

A quick sketch to work out what seemed to be missing, and back to work.
