Not as far on with the German Shepherd as I had hoped to be. I have spent this week playing Florence Nightingale as we have all succumbed to a sickness bug that is doing the rounds. Still, there is some progress, and there’s not too much more of the cross stitching to do, just the dreaded backstitch! Having said that, the backstitch should be a doddle after all the three-quarter stitches on Aida! Why did I follow the instructions in the magazine instead of listening to that little voice in my head?
