Progress, and thanks

First, I want to say thank you for all of your input into my lighting dilemma.  I was happy to know that Ott lights are better than I had been led to believe (obviously anyone who takes time to do a review generally has a problem).  There are a couple of you who have your reponses set to 'no reply' so I am unable to thank you in person.  

Second - I've been working on the latest jacket and have added the decorative elements (pockets, labels and buttons).  Because I have nothing else to show for today, I thought I'd post a couple of photos so you could see where it's at now...


The picture above shows the back....
and the picture below shows the two front pieces...



Now it's on to doing the sleeves!

EDITED TO ADD:

OUR HOUSE IS SOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hip Hip Hooray! the is house is sold!
The jacket pieces look great and so interesting looking.
The Ott lights I have are great. I have a floor and table top model. I have had no problem with either one. I also have a verilux (sp) and it works great too.
