Sue Stone Challenge is Coming Along

I have been working on this in front of the TV at night and it is almost there. The turquoise and gold are heavy curtaining fabric and not the easiest to deal with but the lady is positioned and I am now adding detail with just the gold and black stripes to fix down. The left hand side will be trimmed from the top point of the gold diagonal and the bottom will end with the black band. Her hat is still "floating also but I am moderately pleased with the result and now her eye is done she has some life. The neck piece is two pieces of textured are finger knitted together and then attached. It has given a wonderful. colourful and textured addition. Although the black bands look crooked in the photo they have been pinned on the stripe lines of the fabric so I will need to check that the fabric has a straight grain.
