I was making good progress, although I had to take out a bunch of work along the lower edge of the crown when it didn't line up right.
I'm quite pleased with the way it looks now that I've corrected the design line and finished up the major elements of the crown.
But instead of finishing the crown I found myself working on this tulip design:
This was another one I wanted to alter as I worked on it. I'm not a fan of detail stitches and I wanted to try out some variegated floss I'd acquired.
They were used in the green areas at the bottom of the case. I also blended a couple shades of orange for those petals of the tulip. Makes me wish I'd thought to do the same in other areas, like the leaves. Oh well. I haven't blocked this yet but it looks pretty good anyway.
There are several of us participating in these stitch along updates every three weeks. I invite you to take an inspiring tour by clicking on their names below.

Maybe my crown will be done for the next SAL in February!
