Menagerie is done except for the large amount of background. And I may need to add a border. The photo is dark on purpose so you can see the sections better. The canvas is actually Eggshell.
I only worked 16 of the suggested 19 blocks plus background, which will be the 17th "block".
I chose not to do Whitework, Redwork, Couching or Beading.
But I added Assisi work (the years 2012 & 2013, lower right), a plaid, and a Darning Pattern.
The background will be shaded Blackwork. I think it will go fairly quickly once I figure out what to do!.
