The shading is coming along, but not perfectly. I am still having difficulty matching the Japanese stitch pattern around the center of the leaf. I am going to keep going though I have definitely made some mistakes.
I am starting kanzashi again. I KNOW. I'm an addict. I really wanted to get into my local anime festival. I think I could sell a lot of pieces and get more publicity. I have begun a piece, but no photos yet. Soon, but not yet. :)
