Good morning and welcome to another three-weekly update on Viennese Waltz. I've had a good three weeks. Actually, that's not entirely true, this last week has been awful, but in terms of cross stitching I've had a good three weeks. I think it's mainly because I have an embroidery project and a beadwoven bracelet that I want to get started on, but I never seem to have the motivation and it's easier just to do some more cross stitch!
Here is where I was three weeks ago:
I worked on the pink/red background piece first, then I had to move the frame. Here is a picture from before moving the frame:
I took that one indoors one evening so the colours are terrible, but it shows the progress. After moving the frame I did the pink/red background strip on the left and half of the man's leg/dinner jacket:
I've finished the first page of the two-page chart so I'm more than halfway done. I'm going to have to go to Hobbycraft to pick up some more thread though as I've run out of a couple of colours and another couple are going to run out soon. Don't you just hate that? I just have to figure out if the numbers refer to Anchor or DMC or if they're just totally made up!
