If it looks done it’s because all the cross stitch part IS done!  YAYAYAYAYA… Next step is all the detailed embroidery.  I’m going to work on outlining the outside first.

Here’s a close up of the bottom right side that I was finishing up…

Remember how last week I loved putting the project on the quilt hoop I’ve got.  I don’t love it so much anymore.  After a week of working with it, I realized that I couldn’t keep the back very neat so I the back part of that area is a thread’s nest and not very pretty.  I don’t think I’ll be using it again because of this.  It will probably just be better to take it off the hoop at this point.

My Goal for 2016 for cross stitching is to get the “welcome” project done and get started on my farm piece.
