Thanks All for your encouragement. I got a bit more done last night and have another free evening this evening to work on it but there's not much progress to see yet. I'll post another piccie at the weekend tho.
Mabel, I must admit I may find the larger beigey bits a bit less interesting - I think I shall need a good film to watch while I do those
Genevieve, since the signature thread with instructions I've been trawling avatar sites for one I really liked and eventually found the little cat and couldn't resist him - http://www.avatarist.com/
" target="_blank. I did also see one of a cat sitting at a pc typing which was good fun.
T-bear, as Serinde says it is the same as tapestry except the tapestries I've done (well, started anyway
) in the past have all been half cross stitch only but this has other stitches in it too - large cross stitch, oblique slav stitch, petit point and stem stitch - it's interesting to see the different effects the stitches create as I go along.
Serinde, Nordic Needle looks good - I could definitely add to my stash if I wasn't careful there
