Spot The Difference.

Been busy at my cross stitch again, I've put in mostly back stitch and two little bushes. Here's the last picture I took, at the beginning of June,

And an update, taken this morning. The back stitch has added a little definition to the wolf cub and also on the ground, showing the pebbles more clearly. The little gorilla has also been back stitched, before doing the tiger cub I'll get on with the next creature and a little more of the ground.

I still haven't been back to the Strawberry Lemonade quilt to put on the skirts or the binding, it's calling to me though, so maybe in the next few days. Incidentally, I think I have enough of that fabric left to make a smaller cot or lap sized quilt, so I've been making plans for that too.

Thank you to everyone who came on my walk with me, I wish we could have all gone together in person, I love to walk, but walking alone is not nearly so much fun as walking with friends.

Have a great day.

Good progress there and the backstitch certainly has helped to define the outline.

Well done....and your walk was so nice.....take us again when the season changes.....I have been out walking in my lunch breaks at work and it is good to get out in the fresh air....we have had some rain over the last couple of days but would love a lot more.....water restrictions will be even tougher this year I think....

You have done a very nice job on the stitchery. That is a lot of work.

What a difference the backstitch has made, really defined the little faces

Cross stitch can be so soothing and rewarding to do, and this one is going very well.

Hi Loulee,
Little cuties and lovely progress.
'Bye - Lurline.

Oh wow Loulee! The backstitching changed the color of the fabric to brown! ;) (only kidding)

It looks lovely...I can't wait to see a finished product!

Hi Lou, hope you don't mind, but I have tagged you. Details on my blog. Many thanks

Your dedication and stick-to-itiveness is making me feel guilty about that old fashioned Santa I started for my mother 15 years ago... languishing in the drawer...
Your little tiger is awfully sweet :)
