Apple tree fire screen - finally completing the stem shading

It's taken a while, but the reworked shading on the stems - and so all of the embroidery - has been finished.

Here's half of the stems redone:

And the rest:

It's made a big difference, and I'm glad I decided to over-stitch the too-pale bits.

So that's all the embroidery done.  The next stage in the process is not something I've done before, and it's making me very nervous.  Wish me luck!
