This afternoon I finished stitching the 2nd of the two sides of a Clara Wells purse to the sounds of much jubilation on my part. I'll be sending it to the finisher this week and already I'm anxious to see the finished purse.
If I had them to stitch again, I would still do the Byzantine mosaic for the red area; but I would stitch the black and white flowers in basketweave. Trying to maintain the diagonal mosaic consistently through the design was a pain and time consuming. Life is too short, I have decided.
