I've been working diligently on the white background. It's amazing how long it takes to make one traverse of that central portion. Big sigh! I can see some progress. Having 3-day weekends should help me make more progress.
I also stitched all of the dark brown outline on the big, gold ornament. My mind is still flipping a coin over what, if any, pattern stitch I should be using for the gold. I suspect that basketweave will win again.
