Some Progress

...is better than no progress. This past week at work has been extraordinarily busy, so I have not gotten as far on this piece as I would have liked. However, I do have the weekend off this weekend and I should be able to make a lot more progress on it. I am really liking how the green is making the white show up quite nicely. I think this will be a very nice piece when it is completed. 

I have noticed that it is very difficult to take pictures where the fabric shows its' true colors. I will have to experiment with different times of day and lighting. 

At any rate, here is my usual pre-weekend update:
