Unfortunately, Section 4 has another patch of snow, which is what I am working on now. It started off okay but as I add each additional shade of white or off-white or silver-white, it becomes more difficult to count my stitches. Even under my magnifying lamp it is difficult to distinguish one shade from another and counting from the nearest non-white reference point is time consuming but oh so necessary if I am to get this done properly. I just keep promising myself that I'll be done with the snow very soon. I am looking forward to working on an area less productive of eyestrain.
I shall be concentrating on this piece for the next little while since I want to have it stitched, sewn, stuffed and mailed by early December. There is still a great deal of stitching left and then there's the embellishment with metallic braid and petite seed beads.
