And here's a close up of the area I worked on the past 5 days:
So not bad! And good news is, my stitchy bug has come back out of hiding and I absolutely loved working on this project. I think I just needed a change of scenery so to speak. I really do hope to finish this piece up this month. I've only got to finish back stitching the large light brown cat and the white kitten on top of him, and then stitch two more cats. Then it'll be done and I can get it framed up for my daughter.
