Fleur-de-Lys Sampler ... continued

I have not stitched on this piece at all since my last post but continued working on this today.  The band between the two needle-woven bands is a lot of fun to do but quite laborious and intense.
Lots of variations on buttonhole bars, faggot stitches and satin stitches create interest and texture.
Here are pictures of the area I worked on today:
