St. Pete is here!!!! My kit arrived yesterday and was waiting for me when I got home from work. Needless to say I'm one happy little stitcher. I immediately opened it up, pulled my fabric out and did a floss toss. I'm not using the solid NPI's, so this is minus the DMC. I'm very pleased with the look! One of the Waterlilies, Crystal Bay, is very similiar to my fabric, so depending on where that color is used I may have to add some backstitching with a darker color. but since It's just one skein of that color and just the one color that blends in, I'm not worried about it at all!
So I then decided to treat myself. This weekend I'm stitching on it! Had Part 1 printed out within minutes, lol. On Monday I'll go back to St. Basil's. There's just a couple of weeks worth of stitching left on it, so I can make it.
Here's my first picture! This is about an hour and a half. I was watching Seabiscuit, so I freely admit to ogling Tobey and the horses and not making a whole lot of progress, lol. It's fuzzy, and doesn't get the fabric right. Oh well!
