Lady Melinda in Progress

I made some progress on Lady Melinda, today.  I was fretting over the dull colored wake:

 So I added some brighter fabric to the front and towards the back of the boat:
 I've added a hillside to the right and here is the pennant - I haven't stitched it down, yet.
 And here she is with the beginnings of the cloak clasp (see upper right of dress).  I've also stitched the dress to the boat so it is all one big piece.
 Next up, start adding the background...

Happy Quilting, Penny, Evelyn and Pearl
