So, I'm almost done with the daffodil - you'll get more tasty picture goodness this afternoon/evening. I plan to work some of the smaller leaves and such around the major motifs I've completed, just to get a sense of how the final embroidery will look - before the spangles.

(Note to self: Buy more spangles.)

I haven't decided how much of the smaller stuff will be gold/GST, except that the rose hips will be GST with gold round-stitch tops. The larger leaves will all be done in fill stitches, but I need to decide how I want to work the fills.

And, to finish up, here's a flow chart for Total Eclipse of the Heart. You know, just because.

I have that on my cube wall at work. The only downside is that everybody starts to sing. :-D

Wow. I am so using that in my flow charts examples from now on!

That flow chart was magnificent. I was actually singing along as I flowed through it.

(My response is a bit dated, but so is the song in question - so I thought it was appropriate. *grin*)

A host of silver spangles. . .
Okay - I started to post this yesterday and then deleted it for fear of presumption. Please know this comes from the heart - I'd be happy to share charts of any of the diaper fills I did on my coif, if it will help. I grossly enlarged the original textile and took some fills from it. I _know_ that you are perfectly capable of coming up with a metric crap-tonne of your own fills, but I'd be happy to share. It was funny - when I drew my coif out, I didn't like the pomegranate, so I only put two on it - I ended up loving the way the pom looked with the fills and the Catherine Wheel seeds, so I've got to do another textile with more of the pomegranates. . .

Re: A host of silver spangles. . .
That's very sweet of you, but like you said, I have a lot of fills, and I'm happy with my choices. :)

I'm using some from the period examples that I have, and modifying others for a sense of continuity as I work each motif. But thank you for the very kind offer!

Re: A host of silver spangles. . .
You are very welcome. I amused myself when I started doing the fills, _before_ I enlarged a copy of the textile, I was really chuffed with myself for 'inventing' a number of neat fills. Yeah. Uh-huh. Until I enlarged the textile and saw there's nothing new under the sun, etc. But I was pleased to know I was using period fills, so I got over myself. You are doing just stunning work and I can't wait to see the finished project!
