Starting the embroidery

I decided to jump in and start with the sun since that is the central element on the sleeve.
I am using two strands of #5 gilt smooth passing thread from Hedgehog Handworks

It will be couched down using two strands of Au Ver A Soie ( also available at Hedgehog).

Day 1
Day one, August 30th, about 3 hrs of embroidery
