Fleur-de-lis Proggy Rug

I'm really enjoying doing this rug. It's slow work, takes tons and tons of cloth, is terribly messy, gives me a sore neck and is the funnest!

It will need some trimming later, obviously.
I bought the frame via Miriam Miller at Narrawilly Rugs. It sits on a couple of old trestle legs in my sewing room so I can pop in and do some every day. I signed up for a '10 minute a day pledge' on Rug Hooking Daily, which is good because you invariably do way more.

I started out doing the progs too close together, but it doesn't matter at all. You can't tell.

Here is my sketch (which I've deviated from considerably) and its inspiration.
