Fool's Gold round robin

This is the block I'm going to work on for Flora.

I started with some gold netting that has gold glitter on it. Then I chain stitched around the shape with a thin gold braid. On the outside of the chain stitch, I couched a gold cord and sectioned off the "petals" inside the flower shape.
The gold leaves are just pinned on, as an audition.

Wow, all that stitching with metallic thread! What did you decide about the leaves? Your albums are terrific! What're you reading these days?
