Canopy completed!

With all the stripes of Vineyard Silk Classic Holiday and Kreinik #12 tapestry braid #002 finished, I moved to the gold outside area of the scroll. 

My choice of Vineyard Silk Classic Edwardian Gold for this area brightens the canopy considerably, just the look I was aiming for.  It was worked in an interlocking/encroaching Gobelin stitch, just like the red area, which raises the outside border above the VSC Natural in basketweave and the dark green Impressions background.

Now that the background and canopy are finished, there's one more substantial area that needs to be tackled before I can start in on all the juicy little details.  On to the cuff!

This looks really lush. I love the appearance of the interlocking gobelin.
