When Tomorrow Really Means

The next time I get around to posting. below you see part 2 of 13th Colony Bay. I skipped the photo of part 1 as it really hasn't changed very much I still have to stitch the clouds and the fence. Since my last update I've stitched the majority of the tree on the left and the finished the trunk and branches of the tree on the right. I've also filled in most of the water. Will get back to work on the second tree this evening.

And here is part 3. Since my last update I have worked my way over to the right side and up the hill. I completed the tree and the branches still have good bit of vines to finish, I believe it's a weeping willow. I also have all the water to fill in but I'm getting there. It's been my obsession the last few days. It's time to get off the island. I want to stress again, this project has been a joy to stitch. The charts are clear and despite all the large blocks of color the stitching never gets boring. I am a bit tired of DMC 730, 731, and 732 but it's ok. I have enough room still to move around and change colors. I do see the end in sight. My pictures do not do it justice. This is the point in the project when I see it on my wall and every morning I can't look at it in disbelief that I am still not done!

Oh WOW Melissa it's looking fantastic! You're sure on a roll now that you have the end in sight. I love this design, but don't think I'd ever have the patience to stitch it. Keep us posted with your progress.
