There hasn't been much going on here for the past few days. It is just too hot to do anything but stay inside where it is cool. The temperature today was only 113 degrees.


It doesn't look like it but I did make some good progress on ATC this weekend. I filled in the clouds and started on some of the back stitching. I finished all the back stitching on the clouds and rocks. I started on the back stitching on the castle but I grew tired of it so I filled in the area on the neck. I'm not too close to finishing him since I still have the rest of the wings to cross stitch and back stitch but I do see the finish line. :)

Wow, you're getting there! There's an awful lot of backstitching there, I don't blame you for jumping around a bit. :)

Well, I wish I could send you some of the cool weather we have here in exchange for a little heat...
ATC is a stunning design, and you're progressing fast on it! Congratulations for the Geisha finish too!
Take care, Lili

Doesn't look like you've made much progress?? Are you crazy? I'm wondering if you ever sleep. This piece grows so much between posts I can't believe it. It's beautiful ;)
