Viennese Waltz - update 5

Last weekend I went away for a long weekend with the parents, my brother, his girlfriend and their son - my lovely little 3-year old nephew.  We went to Somerset in the South West of England and had a very relaxing few days.  I did a little stitching which I'll show you soon.

But today is update date.  I missed the last update 3 weeks ago as I hadn't stitched on this piece at all.  I was going to miss this update too but gave myself a good talking too and finally settled down on Friday and Saturday night to make some progress.  Here is where I was:


And here is where I am now.  Just a bit added to the leg/coat of the male dancer.


It doesn't look much but there is at least 3 hours stitching there, probably more.  Now this piece is back on my stitching stand I should make some more progress... unless I get side tracked by my embroidery piece again... must show you that too!

You can go and see what the other participants have been up to here:

Any progress is good progress in my book :)

Counted cross stitch is one of those techniques which can be very quick, or terribly slow, depending on the style of the design. Since this one is based on a watercolour painting, I guess it's of the "terribly slow" variety. But just think how pleased with yourself you will be when you finish it!

A journey of a million cross-stitches begins with ... well ... one stitch :D Just keep plugging away at it and before you know it, they'll have legs, which will make them better dancers! ;)

It's looking great. You must have so much patience to work on that :-) x

glad you had a good time away, did your nephew get his book, or is that waiting for a special occasion?
