Somehow I've managed to get a lot of stitching done on my side project. Apparently traveling around the countryside visiting friends and family has been conducive to stitching. I really thought that I'd finish my project for my mom before I even got close to finishing my angel, but the reverse has happened. All of the full and half cross stitches are DONE!! Now it's just a matter of doing all the backstitch, french knots, sequins, and charms.
Being this close to finishing makes me want to press on, but I worry about not finishing my butterfly piece by my deadline. It doesn't help that I'm already thinking about which chart I'll start next!
