So Close!

I'm getting very close to finishing Puppy - only the half cross stitch and backstitch to go! If I have Tuesday off (I hope!) I'll have this... er, puppy... done!



All the full crosses are done and the half cross is started, though I doubt you can see it - I'm currently working with one strand of pale grey on white material. Lovely way to go blind!

Also a bit of progress on Mary Wigham - two small motifs finished and the first set of initals stitched. While I am going to put Mary's name and the 1790 date, I'm changing the initials on hers to my family's initals. And yeah, I caved and fixed the charted mistake in the yellow medallion. Couldn't take it :D
The little full medallion is the color I was iffy about - it does blend into the fabric a little (only a tiny little bit, though) but for some reason I find it lovely. I wish you all could see it in real life...
