Siberian Gold - February

Time to report on my cross stitch progress for this month.

You might remember that I had decided to work on a couple of projects on a monthly rotation. So it was back to the Tigers for February. This is where I left them.Taking these progress pictures never ceases to amaze me. In a month where I again thought that I'd barely gotten anything done I was really surprised and amazed at the comparison. This is the now.I am so so close to having this one done. Just a few more inches of cross stitch to fill in and then some back stitched detail. If it was just the cross stitching to finish I would be tempted to keep this one out and get it finished, but back stitching always takes longer than you think, and while it is only a few details I know it will take some time. So this one is going away again until April, time to start working on Lakeside Cottage again.

Know what you mean about the back stitch. If you make as much progress in April, this will be finished

I always love the look of cross stitch, you can get such detail into a design, though yours looks very complicated to do.

Wow! So close!!!

How beautiful! Back stitch does take time but it is amazing how it really brings the whole thing together. I used to do counted cross-stitch but it is too hard for my eyes now.

You're almost finished ... with such a BIG project - and it's going to look just great! Congratulations on your good work!

It's so beautiful and intricate already, I can't even see where you'd put back stitching. You do such lovely work.

Wow, so close. I can see why you'd be tempted to keep it out but I think if you stay with your rotation plan, you will come back to this fresh.

It is a beautiful design, I can't wait to see it finished.
