Scissors Sheath Update

All the silver background is done. From the start, one problem appeared. The transfer pen I was using shows through the stitching. Not so bad on the outside edges, but very noticeable on the stem that goes up the centre. So I decided I needed to cover it somehow. So I have used a yellow silk in stem stitch to follow the pattern. The gold imitation Jap thread will then be worked over this.

Below is an image of the sheath at approx. 25hr work.
