St Cuthbert's Banner - the final bit of embroidery

Well it's been a long time coming, but I have finally done the very last of the embroidery for the Banner.  As milestones along the way go, this is probably the biggest until I finish the whole piece.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves.  Last time, I'd done the very last ferns (hooray!), so all that needed to be done was a few flower stems:

And a few more:

The group of wood avens at the end:

And the last few tendrils, completing the whole panel:

Finally, here it is with the grid removed:

And that's it - no more embroidery.  But coming next, is putting all the pieces together, to make the Banner itself.  This is the bit I've been working towards for months, so make sure you keep reading!
