Border is Finished

I'm finally done with the border :) Well it's not really done, I haven't added the gold thread and there is still beading, straight stitching and diamond eyelets. But for now, I feel like I did very good progress and the fun part can begin ;)

I did make some changes from the pattern. I noticed that the bottom border didn't mirror the top border the same way the side's do. So I flipped it:

I tallied the total number of hours I've already spent on it: 177 hours!!! I can't believe how fast time passed (2 months already).

I've already started stitching the grass section at the bottom left. After 45 minutes I only had this little part stitched. I sense that this will require a lot of organization. But I'm determined to pull through :)

Almost There

It's been two weeks since my last post on Peacock Tapestry. I was hoping to finish the border  by now, but got distracted by new stash... from Amazon =D I spent several days going through all the books I ordered. I think I have only 1 left (out of 7 books) that I didn't read. So that didn't leave much time for stitching.

But I'm still happy with the progress I made. I only have the bottom border left to do and then I can start stitching the center piece before I go back to finishing the specialty stitches on the border.

August TUSAL

I like this month's TUSAL colors. So pretty! It's all from Peacock Tapestry's border, I've been stitching nothing else.
