I also took a couple of detail pics. The first is one of the portal sections. There is a lot of detail in these-- specialty stitches, over-one and plenty of metallics. The metallic backstitching is a real pain, but adds a nice sparkly touch.
This is a detail of the little buildings on the outer corners. The rooftops are done in a modified rice stitch, which is then backstitched in gold.
My recent stitching has been a Christmas ornament for an exchange, due to be mailed in a couple of days. I'll post a photo after my partner has received it.
