Anyway, my sister and I also decided that since I (obviously) didn't get this done in time for the fair in 2012, I should get it done for the fair this year. I think that is very manageable as long as I don't lose my stitchy bug before then, even with 2 kiddos running around :)
So technically, this is the 24th week I have stitched on this, even though it has taken over 2 years... And I am pretty sure that I have put more hours into stitching this than Thomas Kinkade put into painting the original. :) Here is the progress I made this last week:
I got frustrated with Belle and her sparkly dress, so I decided to do other work down in the corner instead, to get back into it. I was able to reach the bottom right corner, which means all 4 corners have been reached. I had forgotten how much I really enjoy doing this. Maybe this time my stitchy bug won't leave me, since I won't be getting pregnant anymore. Two kids is good for this family. Here is a close up of what I did this week:
Well, glad to be back in it. Hopefully this one will go quickly now and be finished soon. I don't think I've seen another finished one, other than the picture that comes on the cross stitch. Wish me luck!
