Making good progress now!

Well, I missed Needle and Thread Network last week so I hope I am in time this week. I have finished the Honeysuckle piece except for facing and sleeve and have almost finished the top for the Berberis Berries. On top of that, I have a little shop sample top ready to border and quilt now. The woman is a dynamo!! I am full of energy for some reason ;-D

Here is the picture I am working from -

I LOVE this picture! The berries are like little earring bobs. Quite exquisite! 
Here is what I have done to date. I have a bit of tidying to to, a few more twigs to define and some of the little background berries to tone down . BTW, it is about 17" x32" right now.

I may also add more oomph to a few of the highlights. Stay tuned!  The photo in the middle is next! Pray for me please!!
Now then, I HOPE to post this to the needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com . Check it out. It is getting exciting as there seem to be some new folks all of a sudden! Very nice!
