Menagerie Update #2

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!.

This is definitely an unusual project. Can't wait to see it all finished up. Hope you've enjoyed the challenge of creating your own version of this piece.
