Slowly but surely - another WIP is getting stitched

I started this project in 2004 or 05 - the patterns themselves were released a few at a time each month in the UK Cross-stitcher magazine in 1993. At the time, the newsagent ordered them infor me, so I have several years worth of issues. Never at any time, were all the motifs shown together as a wall hanging. I stitched the 'w' motif for a Round Robin and when finished, wondered just how the whole series would look together. Interestingly enough, right at that time, the right piece of fabric came into my posession - perfect length and width for the motifs as I had planned. It doesn't show here, but it's a soft sage-green.

Karma!

Each motif is only about 52 stitches wide and deep, and should only take a few days each to stitch. They do. I just didn't calculate stitching other projects in between.

J - Japanese Anenome was finished last night. Of course, I've started stitching K - for some fancy word meaning 'red hot poker'. Just do not expect me to show you a finish any time in the next fortnight!!!!!

Beautiful stitching. This piece will be gorgeous when it is finished. And it doesn't matter how long it takes. The stitching is the best part. :)
