Embellishing in the afternoon

The sun has been shining all day and after taking a little walk outside I decided I should sew up a cheerful project. I chose this print with trumpet flowers of some sort. Of course I had to toss in a few roses.After I pieced the neck pouch I sat in the living room with the sun shining on my work. I must say there just isn't better lighting than what mother nature provides. After a few hours I completed the embellishing and put it together. I will save the clasp addition until tomorrow. I have something I want to add to the empty right side.
Enough for me today, time for dinner and a bubble bath!
