I've finished the stitching of the words, and have everything more or less ready to go now. 

I've been thinking what I'd like to do in the background.  I was going to leave it blank as I'm getting to be quite a fan of empty spaces, but have decided to give myself a bit of a challenge.

This is for the Orientation exhibition, so I'm going to put in some chinoiserie wallpaper.  I have one or two photos of old Chinese wallpaper taken at various visits to National Trust properties, and I also have this......

........which is on my bedroom wall!  Very handy.  It's gold on white which I like as it won't compete with the rest of the picture, but I might add colour to it - I'll have to see what it looks like when I get that far.
