Update on my stitching roll

I felt like I was making good progress until I hit the centers of the sun flowers. The instructions said I could put as many french knots as I wanted and well I wanted and they take time and lots of floss.

They gave all the more appreciation for the sheep people stitch where the fleece is nothing but french knots...whew what a lot of work.

Tonight I want to start on the bottom section - the instructions call it the "lace".
