Reed leaves

Finished with the flat gold, and started on the reed leaves.
The leaves on the right side (orange and green) look much better than those on the left side. I may have to re-stitch. I will wait till the right side is done before deciding.

I'm thinking about the finishing for the piece. For her piece, Kay Stanis put a piece of gold lame as backing, so that the carry-over of the flat gold under the voids would not be obvious. She also finished it as a scroll. I will do the gold lame underneath, but probably will do it as a framed piece.
