The Abbey-Progress

First off, I apologize for it being sorta wonky! I tried to straighten it out, but this was the best I could do, without ironing it. So, we will just pretend it's on a hill. I am actually quite amazed at the amount of time I was able to put into it this round. Alot more than I thought. I worked on it,as a reward to myself for unpacking boxes! I'd finish one or two and sit and stitch for about 45 minutes to an hour, then work on another box, and stitch, so it really sorta worked out well. I really hate unpacking, so it was a great incentive. I really think I will see a finish on this by years end, at least I am hoping! There isn't much more x-stitching to do, but I know all the back stitching is gonna be a pain. I don't know why I haven't started working on it yet, I normally hate waiting until the end to work on backstitching, I just haven't yet.
Next up on the blog: ornaments! I really enjoy working on those little guys after a good stint on this big ole one!

Have a great week! Joyful stitching to you all!
