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!
