This project is DONE! It's or nué, worked with Sulky threads and I'm pretty darned happy with it.

Both the new milagro, and the flower project are coming along well. The flower petals are getting backed in detached buttonhole stitch, before I add a buttonhole border. (possibly with lace picots).
I'm filling the milagro with white random stitches. (sometimes called drunken filling) I think it gives a texture and variegated sheen that suits the piece nicely.
Today will be a focus on Or Nuè.

The flower petals are coming along well. I'm attaching the wire edge now. after that I'll do the embroidery on the back. I use detached buttonhole to cover the back of the stitching so that it looks good. I'll probably run gold thread in the stitching for a bit of glitz.
