German 14th century embroidered bag - in progress

This is my second embroidered piece in brick stitch. It is Soie d'Alger silk using four stands on 24 count linen congress cloth. It will take ten skeins of thread when complete. The unfinished part is where I ran out of yellow so I will finish it as soon as I buy some more. When the embroidery is complete I will make it up into a bag and use the fingerloop braid my friend Renee of the Mists made for me to finish the edges and make a drawstring.
