"Take your needle, my child, and work at your pattern: it will come out a rose by and by. Life is like that - one stitch at a time taken patiently and the pattern will come out all right like the embroidery."
Oliver Wendell Holmes

These corner pieces are so much fun to stitch. I saw someone on Instagram called them "bracelets" and that's a perfect name for them. It's where everything that makes this whole design so beautiful comes together: beautiful colors, sparkly metallics, hand-dyed silks, specialty stitches, and (eventually) beads. I stitched a little of the framework of it--the dark navy background and the sparkly gold--hoping that I can sneak in a few stitches here and there in between work this week.
