Wentzler Wednesday War Whoop

Okay, my goal this month is the well nigh impossible one of finishing this piece by the end of the month but I am going to give it my best shot. Don't ask me why I set myself up like this - it's an A-type personality thing and I have gotten used to it! I did spend Monday's and Tuesday's stitching time as well as Wednesday morning's stitching time on TD, so I am happy to announce that I am very nearly done with page two of the cross stitching chart. Once that is done, I think I will go back and do pages 2 and 3 of the backstitching chart. I really want to get a look at those dragons, if I can. As in most TW pieces, the back-stitching really pulls things together. It remains to be seen if I can finish up page 1 in both cross and backstitching charts by the end of the month. But for now, in the very early days of the month, I will maintain my optimism. It can be done! So say I! At this point, imagine you are hearing a very loud rebel yell or Celtic berserker's war cry!

You can do it! Like you I often set myself impossible goals or at least I don't think it'll take me as long as it normally does!

the backstitch on the roses looks like a nightmarish thing to do.. (I'd be in a checking-double checking loop all the time! ;D) good luck with them!!
setting high goals for august must be in the air though: there's a competition here in Italy for a 500 euros prize and I want to win SO badly I'm packed with xxx to do!!
have nice xxx,
Chiara
