Tropical Blooms parasol, panel 2: the design

I’ve got very behind again, but I’ll try and bring you up to date. Having finished the first tambour beaded parasol panel (out of 10), I’m starting straight on with the second. It’s a bit faint (it’s clearer in real life, fortunately), but here’s the design marked up on the fabric, ready to go:

I started with the simplest one for the first panel, with just two big flowers and a few leaves, but the others, including this one, are all a bit more fiddly. It’s not going to be a problem, though.

In fact, I have to confess I’ve already started! I’ll show you work so far in a day or two.
