Around the World Part 3
Here is my Part 3 progress. After cross-stitching the outline I began the central diamond. First I completed the Satin Stitch "X" in the middle, then the four Buttonhole Wheels, then the Ukrainian whitework Faggoting around the diamond's edge. It's interesting that my eye sees the holes made in the pulled stitches and not the stitches themselves. Also, the bright pink stitching you see at the very top and bottom is Plaited Fly Stitch - and I did it wrong, so you'll see it quite different in the final photos.
