Second Stomacher finished!

Here is my embroidered stomacher.  I am quite pleased with it although I gave up on the Elizabethan Braid stitch and used purchased braid.  I found a video on Youtube for the braid stitch which was quite good to follow but as soon as I moved away from the computer I forgot how to get started again.
