I've just finished four rows of leaves. 7 rows appears to be the norm, and then there is an edging. If you are interested in seeing the other 3,500 or so Nightsong projects, the link is here. (Ravelry account needed, of course).
Persistence, stitch markers, and attention to detail. Here's hoping the rest goes well!
Don't forget to stop by Tamis Amis for Work in Progress Wednesday!
