I have finished the stairs on the right side and have started working on the plant on the left side. This has turned out to be pretty painful because there is a lot of confetti there and I am having a hard time seeing what stitches still need to be stitched. For a little break I started working on the right-side stairs. Maybe working on the plant from the top down will be a little easier.
Being able to scroll up makes me feel like I am starting a new phase of this project. I have been stitching a lot of gray stairs. It gets boring, but is also a lot easier than finishing the urn and plant that is on the left-hand side. I think that it is really neat that you can already see the outline of her shawl and gloved arm.
I have been working on Stroke of Midnight by Teresa Wentzler ever since I finished Santas of Fable and Fantasy. It has been going pretty well, up until I hit the vine border on the bottom of Cinderella’s dress. The over-one stitching brought things down to a crawl. I finished that section last night, so I will be doing regular cross stitch for a while. I have also reached a point where I can scroll up on my scroll bars. It feels like quite an accomplishment to reach this point.
