So Close, Yet So Far!!

I've almost (ALMOST) completed the insides of the knots on Blackstone Fantasy Garden.



I have probably two to three more strands of floss to complete the final green knot.



I get to work on this primarily in the morning while having some coffee and before the kids get up, in the afternoon while I'm waiting for my son to get out of school and occasionally in the evening if the eyes are cooperating. I also get to work on it while my son is at swimming lessons and at gymnastics.

If I'm lucky I'll get the knots finished either tonight or tomorrow while son is swimming and then I get to work on the black work!! I can't wait for that and as I've promised myself I wouldn't start that until the cross stitching was done it has been good motivation for myself to keep at it.

Well, speaking of my son, it is time to run to school to get him...

Have a great weekend everyone and happy stitching!!

Can't wait to see your progress with the blackwork. I've come to love doing blackwork, from my blackwork chessboard WIP.
