Dimensional Rose 2

I had so much fun with the first rose ornament that I did another one. The instructions say "Do this as an a mirror image of the previous one". That gave my brain some exercise - I only had to unstitch once when I forgot to reverse the direction. The rose in this one is a little fuller, and I did a cross hatched background, using my JE ruler (a baroque rose ornament?). The cross hatches were done with Kreinik braid, which didn't lay too flat. When I asked around most people prefer the previous one on a plain background.
