So annoying! I had to unpick again! The height of the bricks seemed to be the same for all three layers. I counted seven squares in height and automatically made the top bricks the same height. But when I started making one of the squares on the right edge, the rows didn’t match. I then counted that the top bricks are only six squares high!
I had to unpick the grey and the top dark brown row and a little of the lighter brown. But now they are the correct sizes. The right edge is uneven, probably to show that the stove continues to the right.
It is a stove. That I can reveal now. I will now continue with what is on top of the stove and hopefully some wall as well.
The cat is sitting next to a brick structure with a grey top…
Tomorrow I should finish the bricks and hopefully a bit more than that too.
Having a pretty bad cold now. 😦 Running nose, sore throat, a bit of coughing. Not sure I can go to work tomorrow, but we’ll see. Now it’s time to sleep.
Santa has s cat! And the cat has a little bowl of milk (or maybe water). Also added some dark brown. The cat will look better when the back stitches are added.
Going to work soon. I’ll continue when I come home in the afternoon.
Just some grey… It doesn’t really give any clues as to what’s going on in the corner. These are just shadows.
I need to go to work soon. Tonight I might go to town and get some X-mas gifts with mum. But I will try and stitch as much as possible.
Finished back stitching the window scene this morning! 😀
One final large scene remaining. This is the whole picture so far:
I start working at 15 minutes before 1 pm. Now it’s 10 am, so there is still a little time to begin cross stitching.
Cross stitched a lot today! Finished the cross stitching on this window part of the picture.
Then I started back stitching:
Finished the child with the burning stick, the stool and the two details on either sides. I also back stitched on the edge of the window.
Tomorrow I’ll continue the back stitches.
This is where I’m now in my cross stitching. Yesterday I did nothing at all, because I went on a day cruise to Sweden. A total of nine hours at sea, about three hours in the Swedish town Umeå. I left home before 8 am and came home close to midnight.
I knitted some on the sock while I was on the ship. The waves were pretty high, so I almost felt sea sickness. I didn’t want to do much on the ship.
Today I’m going to cross stitch as much as possible. Hopefully the curtain and the thing above the curtain will be done by tonight. But we’ll see.
