Stitching done!

Tracy got me back on the right track today and now it's all done with just the mounting to do! I didn't think it would be finished today, so just some curved needle torture to look forward to and then it's on to the goldwork.

Slow, slow progress.

I'm getting nowhere fast!  I think I've pulled out more than I've stitched because I just can't get the swirly curve right.  Still, I've finished the day with more canvas covered than when I started so that's a positive.

It took a few attempts, and a lot of unpicking, before I was happy with the curve at the bottom of the swirl.  There doesn't seem to be much canvas covered for the number of hours I worked!!!

Back to work

I had a longer Christmas break than I planned and did nothing at all!  I got back to it today and got a little bit done.  The light is rubbish today, so I struggled to see the colours a bit.  So I gave up for the day!
