Here's Monday's progress on JOB. I finished wll the stitching in the third panel, and added some gold to the lantern at the bottom. I didn't get too much done because I felt guilty and decided to study for my exam (it went okay by the way)Wow, the fabric colour came out quite well in this picture! I was going to do more... I was going to do more gold on the top and bottom, but I got stuck on a decision. I was looking at the way I had put the gold around the rhodes stitches. I followed the instructions which said to do it in two stitches (on the left) but I think It might look better if I just do it as one long stitch (on the right). I looked at other people's WIPs on webshots, I saw that Kyrie is doing it in two stitches, other on people have done it both ways, and some people have done it with four tiny stitches! I'm leaning towards the one long stitch on the right. Any one else have an opinion?
And lastly, I finished Cherry Blossom Spring yesterday. Yay! Now, I can get started on the finishing. Eeek! Actually, I'm tempted to stitch Fir Tree Mountain too so that I can finish them all at the same time. But I really should finish the other two as they were supposed to be birthday presents and they're already very late. *sigh* I just don't know.

Happy stitching :)

I love the pinks in cherry blossom spring :)

Please forgive me, I completely forgot about the SAL this week. Head in the clouds or something I think! I'll definitely be in next week.

With regard to JOB - I vote two stitches, I just like how it looks. But hey, it's your stitching - you go with what you like!

JOB looks gorgeous! I like both two and one stitch, so I'd do whichever you prefer. I'm trying to remember what I've done on similar rhodes stitches and I think it's probably one stitch, but I'm not sure!

Hi I'm Mercy and I found your blog through the Fair and Square Exchange. You have such a beautiful blog! Thanks to you I think I'm going to have to stitch Tocotta 2 LOL. Good luck in nursing school! How many more semesters do you have left? It's hard work but once you're actually working you miss school, that is until pay day hehe.
