A fortnight's work!!!

There is not very much to show for nearly a fortnight's stitching. However there has been much more work done - I needed to do a certain amount of unpicking before I was satisfied.
I really enjoy doing pulled thread work . My black and white version of Mary Thomas's stitch dictionary has some beautiful sampler illustrations of pulled thread work. I wish I owned her embroidery book as well as her dictionary!
I am not sure where I go from here - some pulled satin at the bottom for a start. This piece is definitely changing as I go along.
I will have to try to get a scan that is not a mirror image also!
