This kit was sent to me free of charge from Riolis a while ago. I hadn't stitched on it since I started it in July 2016. When I got all the supplies out of the folder I wasn't looking forward to stitching on it. The chart is in colour and there are a variety of different styles of stitch - half stitch with 1 strand; cross stitch with 1 strand, 2 strands and 3 strands; and back stitch. I had almost decided to give the project up for adoption but decided I would stitch on it for a few days and then see how I felt.
For some reason I really struggle with the colour chart, I think I'm just used to working with black and white charts. It helped me to stitch this with my mag eyes on as I normally enlarge my charts. I haven't made much progress over the last 5 days as I have been on a course at work and have been very tired every evening, but progress, however small, I have made. Also I am pleased to say that I am going to be keeping this and will stitch on it again. Below are my progress pictures.
It's hard to see a lot of the progress as it is half stitches in yellow but I am pleased with what I got done.
My next project is a new start for 1st February and it is Monkshood by Nora Corbett.
Keep stitching and smiling
