Here I've done a somewhat awkward double backstitch center - done without reading glasses and you can tell it in the closeup - and a line of chain sittch ouside the pointy leaves (one on left not done yet).

The new 5-pack of reading glasses is supposed to arrive today, so if any of them break there'll be a backup. I put them on over my regular glasses. A clip-on set of lenses would be nicer, but those things, for unknown reasons, cost in the range of $40 to $50 on Amazon!

To finish this I'm thinking of using the frame to draw a circle around it and making a border of heavy chain, or something like that - I'm not good enough with satin stitch to make curves. Then I'll frame it, probably on a piece of black foamboard that is lying around my mother's house somewhere from when I made a lacy crochet clock.

Thank you. When I work on finer material I'll take a whack at satin stitch but for this I can only do it in straight lines.

Looks good. I also have a problem with satin stitch. It looks so easy, but I find it very difficult to do smoothly. So I avoide it, unless I'm doing it on counted threads.
