The above photo is where I was three weeks ago. The below photo is where I am now. I moved the frame slightly but I have finished his whole leg and shoe, I've also added quite a bit to her dress. I had a semi-successful trip to Hobbycraft on Friday to buy the threads I'm running out of to complete the background. The codes were for DMC threads, except 210 and 211 which were a completely different shade! I did my best there, matching up 210 almost exactly and not worrying about 211.
I'm enjoying stitching her dress, but I'm wondering if I should go back and finish off that boring background first. When I've finished the figures, there's a big of "floor" at the bottom which will be boring too, so maybe I shouldn't get the most interesting bit done first? But then, when did I ever have willpower?
In case you've forgotten, I'm stitching this as part of a three-weekly SAL, aiming to get us finishing our pieces, either new pieces or WIPs.
