Yep, for about the past year or two, I have noticed that it's getting harder to focus on close-up needlework. But I still have 11 houses to finish on this piece--ack! Well, since it was a Country Cottage Needleworks WIP-it Weekend on another blog I contribute to, I decided to pull this out and stitch a bit on it. Here is where I had left off almost a year ago:
And here is what it looks like after working on it Saturday and Sunday:
The "whole" piece so far (yeah, not even 1/6 of the way through!):
To give a bit of perspective, here it is next to Raccoon Cabin, which is stitched over-two on 32ct linen:
Sure, it's cute, but now I'm in a race to see whether my eyes completely fail me before I can get all 12 houses done--blech!
For now I really need to get back to the model I should have been working on. This is just a bad time of year for concentrating on large designs, because there is so much other stuff that needs to be done around the holidays.
Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!
