Blue Flower Metal Embroidery Done

I made a few changes to the piece, most prominent among them the blue bud at the top, removal of the extra leaf, and replacing the edging with gold twist instead of blue silk. There are other minor changes, such as the center of the flower. I think I like it better this way (apologies to Ms Kinsey), and it's a good thing I am not sending it in for evaluation.

The most difficult part was the rough purl, used in the pea-pod shaped leaf. I had to pick them up very carefully with the pads of my fingers, any extra pressure such as with my finger nails, and they crimp. I hope I never have to work with these again!

I think a square gold metal frame with be appropriate for this piece.
