So the painting in the center was just not going to happen, but given how busy the rest of the ceiling is, I thought the center would provide some nice white space to balance things out.

This embroidery took me the longest to complete, by far. I thought I would never finish punching and sewing those little hexagons.

I also changed up the hues of blue for a gradient feel, to add some interest.
