Rounding the bend
The dark green lower frame of the postcard is now finished, using Impressions in a diagonal mosaic stitch. The date at the bottom was filled in with tent stitches of the same Impressions used to work the Nobuko background of the inner scene.
The cranberries at the top of the center scene were worked in an encroaching Gobelin stitch with Vineyard Silk Classic Claret, Bonfire and Sizzle. The stems were created with tent stitches of brown DMC #5 perle cotton and the leaves with two strands of Burmilana in a satin stitch.
