IHSW February

I hope everyone had a great weekend and had fun stitching!

For this IHSW, I worked on Moyland Castle. I am happy to say I am almost done with the castle. It still needs backstitching, but I will work on that after I finish the greenery and sky in this part. Once the backstitching is in, the castle should be gorgeous and really come to life. I am quite relieved that now I get to stitch with greens and blues. Towards the end it was rough-going with all the grays and browns.

I also wanted to let everyone know that I am going to take a little break from blogging as I finish up work for my PhD. I plan to keep stitching as a way to take a break from writing, and I may have some time to check out your blogs, but I will not be updating. At the beginning of April or so, I should be back and hopefully have some great progress pics :)

Thanks for stopping by!
