Magnum Opus Framed

We decided to leave this in the packaging for the photo because of the move coming so soon.  But it's done! Tuscany Town Mandala is framed and ready to hang - as long as it makes it without harm to Luanda.  Yay!

It's Done On Time

Very close to the deadline, but I have finished my Tuscany Town Mandala.  Now to take it to MolDeco on Monday so they can work their magic.  The last couple of months finishing this have been stressful!

Beading Begun

I have officially started the beading and the rest of the other stitching - mainly backstitch.

About To Bead

The cross stitches are all completed and it's time to begin beading.  True progress!

So Very Close

I am so very close to finishing all the cross stitching on this.  This last little bit of corner is it.  Then there are at least a couple of weeks of beading and backstitching to go.

Still Treeing

I am still feeling so very stressed about getting this done in time.  There''s a large gap there that needs to be filled, and very soon.

Running Along The Bottom

So, I made most of the rest of the bottom this week.  It seems to be going well and I hope to have it done by the end of the month.  Well, maybe minus the beading.

I spent pretty much the full week stitching the Pisa triangle, but it's done.  Now all four cities are done and I can just work on the last quarter of the border.

Back To Trees

There's another set of trees done.  I didn't work on the bottom border as much because I only got the color of NPI I needed a couple of days before the photo was taken.

Third Cornered

Three corners completed!  I must be making some progress.  I'm still not sure I will finish in time, though.

To The Corner

I am to the bottom left corner, which is progress.  I still don't know if I'll be able to finish this in time, but it's going to be close.

I am feeling so stressed about finishing this on time.  We have only until August 1 to get it framed before we move, and we definitely want MolDeco to frame it.  I'm making good progress, but is it good enough?

Starting The Second Half

I've made a good start on the bottom half.  It's going to be a bit of a rush to finish the cross stitches by the end of June.

Starting Down The Second Side

This week I finished up the right and started down the left.  I am happy to be making the progress I am and am determined to get this done by the end of June.

Down The Edge

I am now almost to the halfway point on the right side.  I can hope to get it done soon!

On To Fencing

I have a problem at the moment in that I am missing a color of Treasure Braid.  It's ordered but hasn't been shipped yet.  That's the reason for the gap in the metallics on the left.  On the other hand, I'm making pretty good progress otherwise.

Tree Topped

The trees are all the way across the top now.  I've got a bit of the right corner square done, too.  It's amazing what four lengths of thread a day can do to progress.

One Set Of Arbor

I've got the one side of the forest done.  Time to do the other side.  I feel so much pressure to get this done.
