Sweetbag!

In modern life, there is only so much time for creative projects.  I probably ought to be working on a different embroidery project (which has a pending deadline) or on scroll projects (which also have deadlines), but I promised myself this embroidery project would be done this year. I’ve been working on it a little bit each day to further that goal.

So, Ta Da!  The sweetbag is now half-way stitched.

The photo doesn’t show how shiny the silver and gold are.  Trust me, the stuff just sparkles in the sun.

I figure I’m about a 1/3 of the way done with this.  I have to stitch the front side and then I’ll have to do the construction, including tassels, cords and pulls which mostly are done in techniques I have very little experience in.

I’m pretty happy with my progress thus far.
