Ok, so this is the third week in a row I’m talking about the wolf…next week I’ll probably move onto something else (barring any major surprises!) But some good news: I’ve found the bottom right corner! And I’ve done some back stitch (enough to put me off it again, however much it’s worth it in the end!)
So, we were here, at 12.5 hours
You can’t really tell, but the bottom right brown bit is very nearly the bottom corner(I think it’s like 2 stitches off). The brown bits are branches, and the white snow is actually a combination of two shades of grey. Awkward much…
Anyway, 2 more hours of work put us to here:
Having reached the bottom right, I’m now swinging up and then around. I may change my mind and move off in a different direction, but for now that’s the plan.
Another thing about me and cross stitching- I park (leave the threads there to come back and stitch in later), but only after a while, and I can’t plan to park right from the off. It has to happen naturally. And it doesn’t always happen. *shrugs*. Just one of life’s strange things I guess!
After those two hours, I decided I should probably do some of the backstitching, in a bid to not leave it all to the end.
So I spent an hour and a half filling in some of the bottom right backstitching.
Ok, so I didn’t spend the whole time back stitching, but I think I did a decent amount before I got distracted- and I pretty much did all of it that I could do, given where the gaps are. So in total so far, I’ve done 16.5 hours. Pretty good really, even if I do say so myself. My new guesstimate for how long it’s going to take me is 80-100 hours. Let’s see how we go!
