Mich - Long time no see !!!

Due to my holidays, I didn't post my progress anymore the last 3 weeks. But in the meantime I have of course read all of your nice posts !!!

This is what I had been stitching 3 weeks ago. As you know I took the work with me to Belgium, and managed to stitch a little there also.









And this is what I had stitched up untill last Monday. I find it so fantastic, because now I only have to stitch with blue, and even if the colours are quit similar, it's never boring.
I find it so great that I don't see a thing about the whole pattern when I'm busy stitching all the blue, but when I then look at the work from a distance, all of a sudden the shades from a tree are arizing. So amazing !!! Incredible how they can make such beautiful patterns !!!!
2 more rows to go and I have finished page 3 also. But I have to be honoust, page 3 is only half the size of a normal page, as I have landed at the end of the work on the right hand side ;-))
