Reviving ancient ornament

Ancient ornaments are my passion. For example, I love this 16th century ornament from this site.
I enlarged it and made a chart. Well, I can see some mistakes now because enlarging the picture to pixels generates "noises" which are seen on the chart unfortunately.

What I decided to do - to make a bag in tapestrycrochet technique.
This is how it looks now. I like it. And two yarns make the garnment harder - just needed for a bag.

Here I demonstrate the trick - the loom of the previous stich should be in the colour of the next stich.

I will show you the bag when it comes ready. :)

My first stick insect is born!

I received stick insects eggs 3 month ago and so much time had passed that I didn't hope anymore. I decided that I did something wrong with the eggs. This morning I noticed that some stich has fallen in the bowl, I wanted to clean it out but... it moved.
