This small piece will hopefully be done by the end of the week. There is nother row of flowers all the way around & then another border. It is quite a cheerful piece to work on, and doesn't tax one's brain too much! I used a full 6 strands of floss for the purple outline & while that worked fine for the slanted (backstitched) lines, it seems too heavy for the Continental lines. I think I'll cut that down to 4 strands for the next one.
