Just 1 little bit left!!!

Today I got to work on finishing my RSN crewel piece.  I did the lattice work on the left leaf.  I did a fairly small lattice with a gradient securing stitch and gradient french knots in the centers.  Then outlined that section with stem stitch.
 Lattice added. 

 Gradient securing stitch.

 Gradient french knots added.  I did the gradient on the french knots one step lighter than the securing stitch that they were beside. 

 Stem stitch outline.

So close to finishing . . .

Happy Holidays and Happy Stitching!!!

Progress is being made on my RSN crewelwork piece!  So excited that I just have 2 more bits to go and then I can mount it and have it assessed (though that last bit makes me very nervous)!
