Illuminated House Blessing Progress

Here is what I have done so far on Illuminated House Blessing.
Helen is right about this one! It is deceptive! It looks simple but the amount of detail is incredible, with a lot of backstitching.

I started in the center and worked my way up to the top.

In the upper left-hand corner, there is some sort of ferocious little beastie!

... and in the right-hand corner, there are some inter-twined serpents!

I need to finish backstitching the serpent area, and then I guess I will go on to the illuminated initial.

This is not going to be a quick stitch!

Quite an undertaking, I'll be keeping track of this, lol.
