Well, I met my goal of completing this before the baby came. The shading on this project was enjoyable - the backstitch was painful! This is the first cross stitch I've done where the backstitch didn't follow the existing holes so I had to focus very carefully! I am very happy with the final product.

This is a WIP I've had in my pile for a while and with the yellow stripes on my large project doing my head in I thought I would throw this into the rotation to provide some variety. As you can see it is almost done. There is quite a bit of blue and green shading to go as well as all the backstitching - so I don't expect I'll finish it in the next month. I really love the colours in this design and while it's all a bit grubby at the moment I know it will come up beautifully. Will hopefully have a decent update next month or perhaps June.
