Time for the quarterly update on my cross stitch project!
Here's a reminder of what it will look like when I'm done:
Here's what it looked like during my last update in April 2017:
And here's what it looks like now:
This represents 14.5 hours of work spread over just 7 days, a significant drop from previous quarters. I became a bit demoralized when I discovered that I miscounted on one of the dark blue sections (second from the right). Unfortunately, I discovered it too late to tear it out & do it over. Therefore, to make up for it, I had to be creative with adding and/or dropping stitches in the various shades of gold that surround that section. There are seriously 4 or 5 shades of gold to use there and it all got a bit confusing.
But I persevered and I think it’s been fixed now. I’m excited to get more work done on it this upcoming quarter!
