That old song goes something like The Grass is Riz - I wonder where all the flowers is? Well, this month I worked on doing all the monotonous long and short stitches to finish the grass. I did it number one because I just wanted to get it out of the way. It paid off in an interesting way though. This month was really stressful for me. But each night I would sit and work on that monotonous grass and just feel the stress falling off of me. Anyone know what stitch it is that makes the pounds fall off?
I also did one of the little bunnies, two of the raspberries, the little blueberry bush on the right and got a start on the small tree to the right. I played around with the idea of changing the colors on the peacock/chicken to the left of the stag. You might think I'm closing in on being done. Alas - not so! When I finish the bottom portion I have to go back up and stitch the urns with their flowers and then finish some of the frustrating cross stitch I just could not bring myself to do back in the winter.
Anyway, I think I got a lot done this week and have moved on to the new project in my rotation - Opus Magnusson. I will be stitching that one for the rest of my life!
Thanks for your comments on my blogging question; I'll update you if I hear anything more. Hope you enjoyed!
