progress

First sheet of filler patterns for the labours of the months. I make this a little over halfway, well, halfway through the fillers at least -I’ll still have the rossettes to do after the fillers.

I decided to do them on several sheets, partly for ease of working, and partly to minimise the amount they would get dirty. then again, even though I thought I’d kept this first sheet remarkably clean by my standards the water still went quite black  when I washed it!
