Even in my native language I would not easilly find the words to express how I feel about your work. :applesauce: In English the words "awesome", "stunning" and"wonderful" come to mind. You must be a teacher of primary school to have all this patience. Having stitched a couple of larger projects myself, I do understand how much work is involved, and I am also impressed with your speed. Do you use parking? Do you stitch in whole stitches or do you make half crosses and then complete the stitches as you return?
Thank you for sharing your work.

Happy stitching!

No I don't use parking, I'm a cross country stitcher. And yes I stitch whole stitches rather than half stitches then complete them on the return.
Thank you for your kind comments :)

Oh, your method is exactly like mine! No wonder you stitch so fast. When I next time arrive in Box Moor, maybe we could have :coffee: or :tea: and a nice talk about stitching matters? :wave:

FAB U LOUS!!. I agree, you are so very quick & so neat. This just gets more awesome the more I see it. It beggars belief that you are actually stitching it by hand! Truly amazing & supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (or however you spell it). You should get some award for stitching this, medal for patience I think. If there is not one , I am sure others on here can soon make one to present so you via the Internet once it is complete.

Truly fabulous work :whoop: :whoop:
