We Have a front

Finally, after weeks of stitching, I have a front.  The weather at the moment is awful, so it's difficult to get any decent pictures, it's so dark.  I'm sure you'll get an idea, and hopefully, once it's backed, we'll have enough light to get some decent photos.
 This is the cloth as a whole, three pieces were added yesterday
 This section is a series of pockets, the words all refer to things that have either brought me great satisfaction, or great pleasure. The little "puff" was added also, stitched using french knot flowers and trailing knots.

The space between the pocket and hexagons will be filled with a line of Chinese knots, which still need to be made 

Piece to the left includes a signature and date
And a final look at Saturday's stitching

It's wonderful! All that handwork really was worth it to see the final product! How big is it now?

Gorgeous. I know what you mean about the weather at the moment...it's so very dark. And the clocks haven't gone back yet!
