Getting there!- slowly

I have been working all day again and finally feel like I am beginning to see the end of the beginning. I have all of the background fabrics, some detail done and am now puzzling my beard! (tee hee hee )- Don't be skeared, It's only a beard! And- it's on an iris. As it stands now, it is a callow youth- beardless.



This was where I was last night when I went to bed. I did not really like the bottom half of the left side . Looked too much like a red tiger ! So... this morning , I ripped the stripes off and finally replaced it with a solid piece of fabric with built in striations.
Not sure why this shows up the way it does but - there you go! Anyway, I am going to post this to the needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com

This is not perfect colour either but maybe better than what I used first. I will get DH to photograph it for me . He does EVERYTHING perfectly!
