A bit more done

Hi all I've managed a bit more this week but still a good bit of cross stitching to do and then LOADS of back stitching.
 I'm doing this for a friend who couldn't do it she had made a right mess of the bit she had started.
Silly me said I'll do it.
I didn't know there could be so many fractional stitches in one piece. 
Row upon row of top half, bottom half. Left side right side and stitches that straddle between 2 split stitches covering the holes in middle.
Oh well as I'm at the bottom on right corner there can't be that many more of them I'm sure (well I hope there isn't)

Great progress Pam! Such a gorgeous design, I love watching it grow. :)

Thank you.
I find myself looking at photos to check its growing lol.
As all you stitchers will know you seem to stitch for hours and get nowhere but by taking pics you can see it's grown at least a little bit

Well done Pam, its looking lovely.
Never the same when you are stitching something for someone else, the enjoyment just doesn't seem to be there.

Hi Julie I'm enjoying doing it ok but so many fractional stitches that take twice as long to do a row it doesn't seem to grow very much.
Can't wait to see her face when I give it to her all finished :-)
