A new start!

So! When my mom was here last month, we were talking about some of my stitching projects, and I was showing her some of what I was working on as well as some of my stash. 
Weeeelll.... When I showed her this:
She loved it so much, so I've decided to stitch it for her.
Here's my progress thus far:

That is roughly 1000 stitches. In about 5 hours time. 
I'm working 2 over 1 on 22 count, tent stitch. 
This is my first time stitching on a higher count fabric than 18 and my first time stitching in tent stitch. I think the coverage is ok. Not great, but it's not bad. So, yeah. Another BAP full coverage piece. (15 pages) I'm glad it's stitching up so quickly.  

So that's what I've been up to. Thank you for stopping in! I hope you all have a great rest of your week!

Your start looks fab! I've worked several of Mystic Stitches patterns. They're the bomb. Think this one is in my stash too!
