Winter Cross Update 11-23-14

Winter Cross 10-28-14Well, it’s been another month of stitching and I feel like I’m not making any headway. This is how it looked at the end of October. I was starting to stitch the bottom part of the cross and that poinsettia was taking forever to finish!

Before I show you what it looks like now, I want you to see why I always feel like my progress is so slow.

I keep looking at that pattern, knowing that when I’m done with stitching the cross I will have to start on the words and all of those French knots that go between the words.
