Noah's Ark cross stitch update...



 Promises Kept by Scissors Company.
This is a slow stitch. I have been working on the roof for months. There are a lot of mixed colours (one strand of one colour stitched with one strand of another) which means concentration plus, plus, plus.  The colours aren't labelled well either so I needed my university degree to keep track of which colours to mix.  Despite all that I am liking the detail especially the camels! I have a bit more backstitching to do to bring the other animals alive. When I compared to my first post here I have come a long way.

It's looking amazing. Blending colours is a lot of work, but it does pay off in the end result. Great job!

Gorgeous, I can hardly wait to see everything with more backstitching.
