Lily Compass I Embroidery, Center Small Points

Our compass is coming right along.  Let's knock out those center points:

Using 2:1 Twist in the primary colors lay in the small points.  Notice that I placed the color of small point on the opposite side of the larger point.  Example: dark purple small point adjacent to dark purple larger point, and so on:

As an accent put in 2:1 twist Midori 5612 Gold (a bit darker than the 111) for the points in between the primary colors:

Couch #4 Gold around the center.  We'll couch gold around the points but wait until after the crescents are put in.

Isn't it really colorful?  That was just my intention in designing this piece.  Bright and Bold.
