Stitching all done. Almost ran out of the Crystal Braid I used for the center and one set of petals.
For anyone out there who is doing this piece please don't trace petal sets as close together as I did! As I finish my own work it is not a major problem.
I need to find some ultra suede to back the petals with and then I will photograph the method I intend to use.
First the piece needs to be left for at least 48 hours on the stretcher bars. This helps avoid the need for blocking.
