For those that don't know what I'm talking about, check it out/sign up here. It's hosted by Pull The Other Thread and is a very (thank God) relaxed SAL. Each month we post before and after pics of the progress on our UFOs, or in my case our WIPs, since that's really all I have at the moment. Folks are obviously encouraged to post each month, but coming and going as the months roll by is allowed too.
Onto the progress. :-) I must first apologize that I don't have a before pic. Suffice it to say that before I began there was no backstitching done at all. I've managed to make a little progress this month. All of the black is finished on the bird at the top. I just need to finish with the grey-ish thread and then I can move onto the other one.
For those that didn't catch my previous post about this pretty little thing... I did NOT do any of the stitching on this. My Grandmother started it many years ago and sent it to me as a gift to finish for myself. I found out the hard way that there are a few different kind of stitches in this one that I've never run across before so it's going to take me a little longer than I originally anticipated. Always fun to learn something new though!!
You may want to click the picture to see the backstitching detail a little bit better.
I can't wait to have this one framed! Hopefully YOTA will keep me on track with this one.
