I didn't like the satin stitches for leaves around the Queen flowers. Frogged out and replaced with Queen stitches like other Balch samplers I've seen. I took out some of the old leaves I did and redid them.
Far left tree has V and L symbols and hard to distinguish on the chart.
The leaves are L and branches V
Everything complete except the filling in which is taking as long as the sampler.
