Winnie the Pooh II April progress

Third time is the charm, friends!  So, I am using the chart from the kit, subbed DMC and antique white monoco for the floss and fabric, respectively.  I restarted and gave it 4 days effort in April.

I finished the first 2 columns down to the midpoint, and most of the third column.  What's undone in the third column are over 1 sections, and blended floss (with filament)... I didn't feel like getting into the fiddly stuff and I intend to stitch all the 2 over 2 before doing the 1 over 1 sections.  It's about 2,000 stitches.  I also got a tiny start on the 4th column.

I'm pleased with it now.  I won't finish this year but hopefully I can finish at least 25%.

    1. Thanks! I feel kind of like I memorized the chart, the first column anyway.

  3. If that's is just 4 days of work, I am pretty sure you COULD finish if you tried! 25% will be a piece of cake. It looks great now!

    1. It's only 5% done now, and it's already May.... I think I can get to 25% if i do a few days each month though.
