SAL update - week 1 of Viennese Waltz

Good morning ladies and gentlemen.  It's time for a Stitch Along update.  As you know, I finished Save the Stitches and so I had to dig out another WIP to work on.

I chose Viennese Waltz by John Clayton, a counted cross stitch kit.  I stitched another kit in the series, Tango 5 years ago, that was my third ever blog post!  I started this one about a year later, but it got packed away.  Here is how it looked three weeks ago:


I think I know why it was packed away, I've discovered a lot of mistakes in the purple area!  I'm just ignoring them and working round them, it's not vital to the design.  Here is where I am now.


I've actually done quite a lot of that background, it's just difficult to see.  I'm going to plug on and get the background finished before I start the next page.  I took the photo with the frame resting on one of the bunny runs, so I thought I'd snap a photo of the occupants.


The other two were hiding from me.

Yes, absolute details in the background won't matter here, as long as overall, the graduation is about right.
