angrboda: A close up of some cross-stitch (Cross-stitch)

Last time I posted here was back in April and I'd almost just started this project. It was designed by Lesley Teare and featured in Cross Stitch Collection magazine in... erm, spring 2015. I've been working on it consistently since then, which is kinda new for me. With previous projects I've always run into one or two longer breaks from it. Anything from a couple of weeks to a couple of months. Sort of like a writer's block, only about stitching. Stitcher's block? Not really this time. Or at least, when it's happened, it's only lasted a week at most.

Last time, I also showed a card I had made for some friends who were expecting a baby. Turns out my friends are apparently breeding like rabbits, so I've already stitched up the front of another card which will become relevant in... erm... I forgot. October or so, I think. The chart was freely available on the internet at Cross Stitch Pattern. The lovely thing about this particular one was that it said on it exactly how many stitches it involved. I used it for a little time-keeping experiment and worked out that apparently when I work concentratedly, I average about 100 stitches per hour. Of course, this was an easy, simple project with only a handful of colours and large areas of each colour. I expect I'm probably a lot slower on that tea cup.
