Woohoo! Some significant progress :D

Well the cross stitch on boxers is DONE!!! Now just the back stitching left!

I did have to do a little tiny bit of frogging when I realised that I had put the wrong colour in a couple of days ago... fun stuff! But it all worked out. and as a reward for finishing that much I worked on afternoon tea.

It's not really much but it's getting bigger and the whole corner is now filled in. I love the colours in this border. I have put in various shades of brown with some redish and some greenish. there was an almost crimson red and a lime green. There are also 2 dots of pink. In the lower part of the border there is a gorgeous rich purple it was just so exciting to put in. The colours really make this pop.

Close up to see the colours :D
So much exciting stitching but I am now going to have an afternoon nap. I desperately need a sleep!
