First, the blue lattice-work purse, the embroidery portion of which I had finished late in August of 2010 (post here), is now three-dimensional! All that's left to do are add the drawstrings (not pictured, but they're a brilliant red), and finish the tassels (tassel heads will most likely also be red).
Secondly, the white, gold, and red pattern that I had interpreted from the 14th century altar hanging in the Cloisters (post here) is well on its way; roughly half done with the embroidery. A portion of that is shown below.
And finally, I've just begun working on another piece of embroidery to turn into a purse. The pattern for this one can be seen in this post. I think this will be the last bit of Germanic brick-stitch I do for a while. I need to branch out with my embroidery, and I also have a few other non-embroidery projects that need my attention as well.
