I am really enjoying spending time on this piece. This page felt that it took a little longer to stitch but I have to remember that I’m back at work now after Christmas break and I don’t have so much stitching time available. That said I think it only took me one more stitching session than the last one did.
With this design it’s only when working the two main figures that you can easily see what you are stitching. Most of the background forest feels like you are stitching lots of colours and it’s only when you stand back that you can see the foliage and the tree trunks and those odd areas of lighter colours turn into sunlight making its way through the leaves.
I’m close to finishing this row of pages and not far into the month so the plan is to stitch the end of row page and then start February on the next row.
