Did about three hours on the sweetbag last night. Added the two leaves in the bottom corners for balance and started on the second half of the goldwork stems. I used a different imitation Japanese gold, the Kreinik one. Has a lighter gold colour and I think it worked easier than the gold thread I used for the first side. I am tempted to redo the first half of stems, firstly, to match the colour and secondly, it will have less breakage on the gold. I think I will leave the cheap stuff for couching work.
