    Working as an adverd

    I am trying to find out the reason(s) why 'working progress' in the sentence "It's all a working progress" may be grammatically correct or incorrect.
    Is it correct to say that 'progress' is a noun and 'working' is an adverb that is qualifying the noun, specifying the extent to which to progress is taking place?

    I've never seen 'progress' used with 'a'. Where does the sentence come from?

    I think the phrase that you mean is 'A work in progress' like a picture being painted by an artist for example.
