Clara Wells purse, 2

There are two identical sides to this purse so I'm going to try to stitch a little on each side.  That way I won't finish one side and then drag my feet stitching the other because it's boring.  Ah, what tricks one must play on oneself!

This is my progress on the first side. 

I wanted to show how I started the Byzantine mosaic on the 2nd side.  I copied the position of the pattern on the first side.  These are beautifully stitch-painted canvases.  I liked the flow of the stitch on the first side and wanted to be sure I replicated it on the other side.

  1. I call this trick "a carrot for the horse"--use it all the time!
