This won’t become a craft blog, I promise.
Here is the Klimt project I was talking about last night. The top photo shows my (meager) progress. My best decision was choosing black cloth so I don’t have to stitch those areas - also, more texture to the finished product.
The bottom photos are details of the border and the beads on the woman’s dress.
I’d say I’m about 1/6 done. Let’s see if I can get it half done by April 1st.
