…and to the left

Same again, but to the left of the cowslips this time.  A few stems added:

A few more flowers linked up:

Leaves and ferns joined together:

All done:

That’s the lot for the bottom panel.  Hooray!  Here’s the full panel, completed:

This still has the layout grid on, of course, but with that removed, all that’s left are the flowers, as they’ll appear on the the finished Banner:

You can’t tell in the photo, but the tacking stitches for the grid have left slight impressions in the velvet.  I think this should largely solve itself and the pile of the fabric bounce back, so I’ll leave it alone for a while and see how it gets on, but I may have to intervene.  I’ve got ideas on what to do if need be, but does anyone have any tips?

I must admit that I’m pleased with how it’s turned out – it’s as close to a pretty tricky design as I could get, and I think it works well. It’s quite a relief!

Back to the beginning now, though, and the start of the second panel…
