A Weak Wentzler Wednesday

I didn't get much done yesterday, just filled in the odds and ends on the right side of the circle and have begun to fill in the upper right corner of page 2 of the cross-stitching chart. One reason progress is so slow is that there are so many color changes. Typically, I take one blended needle, stitch three or four whole crosses and half a dozen quarter crosses and then it's on to the next color change. Right now I have about a dozen needles threaded with all different combinations of thread, stuck in labelled sheets of memo paper. It saves a little time, having the needles ready to go, but not a heck of a lot.

You may not think much progress shows, but this photo really shows the detail and lovely design, AND your beautiful stitching! You're doing a great job, and I'm looking forward to the next "installment" (so to speak, lol).

Even though it's slow progress, it's progress, and you're doing great!

It's looking beautiful, even though progress is slow. I just love how this is turning out.
