Here's how it started out:
I've finished one long edge. Teeny, tiny buttonhole stitches.
And I've been stitching leaf veins in the center medallion. I discovered some curlicues in amongst the leaves and flowers, and since I didn't know what color they were meant to be, and since I had the purple on hand, decided to do them in purple. They'll make a nice contrast with the yellow roses and green leaves.
And....... I got a phone call this morning, telling me that the variegated threads I ordered had finally arrived. I picked them up right away! Yea!
Guess what I'll be doing while watching the rest of the Olympics!
