Getting to the good stuff
Both "beds" are made now on this little Sailor's Valentine!
For the inside section around the captain's house, I used DMC floss #225 in basketweave. You can see this area has a lower profile than the scalloped area worked in Petite Very Velvet. This contrast provides some dimension to the piece and makes the scallops look more like a frame.
I've worked French knots around the center scene with Vineyard Silk Classic "Sage" as the first step in planting my nautical garden!
