Sweetbag and Coif

I did about half an hour on the sweetbag. Finished on leaf. It really does look good once there is some colour on it. I think I will keep working it this way, outline then fill, rather than doing all the outline and then filling in. Really gotta knuckle down and workout the plaited braid stitch. I got it working a while back, but it's one of those stitches that if you don't do it regularly, you forget. Also, most of the problem is when you are just starting it off, once you are working it, it is dead easy.

I've pretty much decided the next big project will be the coif. I think I will use exactly the same motifs as the sweetbag, but because they will be worked in different stitches and styles, it will look totally different.
