WORK IN PROGRESS

I had thought I would have been able to show the finished piece, however it is still work in progress. For the past two weeks we have had the painters here first painting the lounge which ment a big upheaval with the furniture being moved to other parts of the house, piles of books in the hall, china stored elsewhere and in the mist of all this little stitching was done !! It was not much better when they moved outside to do the house. Still the finished result has been worth it and we have finally put everything bag in its correct place,
The piece I have been working on is another of my small pockets (bags) last year I showed on the blog three I had done and it is my intention this year to add to more. This one is a pocket for a wood nymyh, I had collected quite a few bits in green tonings but when put together they really did not match so it has gone to autumn tones.
I hope to be able to post the finished pocket in a few days time.

WOW, this is lovely! I would love to stitch this design to, but maybe it's to difficult for me.
Beautiful with the threads and beads you used!

Having workers around the house is quite an upheaval, isn't it, Lee. When we remodeled our home they were there for 10 months--I was so glad when I had my privacy back again!

Your piece is amazing--I can't wait to see it finished!

Thats beautiful Lee. Such gorgeous detail. In answer to your question on my blog, I am moving to Lower Hutt - so not so much 'North' as in top of the North Island, but more north than where I am now on the West COast.
