This is the rose slip with both rounds of couching completed. I won't have time to do the other three slips before I submit it for the competition. I've got holes in my sewing fingers as well as being short on time. I will take a photo of the whole thing as it stands now and post it tomorrow.
I'm pleased with how the second round of couching came out. I am a bit concerned that it may be too heavy but have to remember that this is meant to be seen from a distance, so it needs to be chunky.
