Zipping right along

It's amazing how quickly the stitching on a piece can progress when the particular stitch you're using has already been painted on the canvas!

With the tent stitch zig-zags painted ahead of time, I made quick work of filling in the slanted gobelin portions of the jacquard stitch background. I used four plies of DMC floss #321 for this section.

I've started to fill in the tent stitches with Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #002 in the top right corner. When the gold section is completed, I'll move in to the center to finish up this ornament!

Wow! This really is speeding right along. This has a great rhythm to it.
