Slowly this Xstitch is getting worked on. I am trying a new technique from a fellow X stitcher Gail. She suggests before you put your stitching away for the evening, thread the next colour, and leave it in your piece ready for the next stitching session. This might help get me pick it up more frequently. Sometimes i think it is all too hard to get the pattern out, work out where I am up to, find the colour that I next want to work on...etc.
So far this is working out really well! Thanks Gail, I may actually finish this sometime this year!
