Ophelia: Fourth Post - Page 2

So page 2 of Ophelia started off with a bang.  I got over halfway through the page in the first week.

The last half just seemed to take forever, especially when I got to the main darker purple.  Tonight I was finally able to push through to the end.
As I mentioned, I'm not stitching the parts that are actually Ophelia, which is why the bottom right corner of page 2 is blank.

So, finally three pages down:

The next page is, again, mostly background.  There is a flower that I will actually stitch since it's kind of in the middle.  So be prepared to see a few new colors, finally.  As of right now, I'm still planning on keeping this my main project, however, I did start another beading project.  If I'd known changing the thread count would make me work on it this much more quickly I would have done it ages ago.
