In addition to the past two months being really busy, I haven't had a lot of time to stitch, but I am making some progress on Chatelaine's Provence. I love how this is turning out and hope that I don't hit a wall at some point and put it down. Sometimes when things are repeated on all four sides, as this design will start having once I get a little further along, the Gemini comes out in me, and I have to move on to something else.
But I have made a little bit of progress on this and I'm really pleased with how it's turning out. The little bit of purple in the upper left is another part that I just started on. It will be an eggplant and the other three corners will also have fruits or vegetables of some type - lemons, cherries. What really slows you down on these designs besides just their vast size is the use of metallics, beading and specialty stitches. It's not all cross stitch. But I love needlepoint also, so this combines the best of both worlds.
