Latest pic after 5 weeks since you last saw it. Maybe another 4 or 5 weeks to finish it off. Decided not to add beads, will use normal thread to fill in the roses - probably try it with 3 strands first of all to see how it looks as that will make them stand out. If I don't like that, will just do normal 2 strand cross stitching .
Edit: Am unable to change date on main topic sp it still says 12th March!
