I worked on Minerva a little bit more last night before I went to bed. I've got right about 600 stitches in her right now. It just looks like a tiny dark blue blob. LOL
I've got a closer picture, too. There are actually two different colors in that blob. I'll be honest, the only way I know that there are two colors is because I can see the difference on the back. Can you see the two colors?
Most of my stitching is done on the weekends, so I probably won't have another update until next weekend or Monday. I hope everyone makes great progress on their pieces!
