Suzy Q Progress Report #4

SuzyQ is nearly done! I finished the outer border yesterday and put in the diagonal strip, Neon Rays couched with #4 Kreinik. I have started outlining each area with back stitches in #4 Kreinik. Once that is done, the piece will be finished according to Ro's instructions. But I'm thinking that I might want to fill in around the large brown stitch patterns, maybe with cross stitch? Comments anyone?

The decorative stitches are very nice, but having the empty spaces around everything gives it an incomplete design feeling. I don't know what color you are using to do the backstitching, but I'm hoping that it's a darker color to emphasize each of the squares. Maybe a medium color around most of the squares and then a darker color to outline the dark brown square. Looking forward to seeing what you decide.
