I have made considerable progress on this fractal. I have now completed one page, and about half of the next. I hope to finish that 2nd page this coming weekend. I am wishing I had used a lighter brown around the edge. But, there's NO WAY I'm going to take that out! Lots of the yellow & gold threads are now on top of the brown, on the back. As it is, I changed it from black to very dark brown. I'm quite pleased with the way the blue stuff is turning out. I am using Kreinik's Japan Gold (in place of the gold floss) within the blue areas.
