The Raven

I started a new cross stitch project!  I had the pattern plus materials for a while now, and decided I felt like starting it. 

The chart is called "The Raven" by La D Da.  I Love crows and ravens, and this particular chart has a phrase from my favorite poem, Edgar Allen Poe's The Raven!
I am stitching this on 28 count Linen in "Desert Sand" color.  I am using 2 strands DMC floss over 2.  I have been working on it for a couple of days.  Here is what I have done so far:

It's not much so far...I am still quite slow, but I just love cross stitching, so I am still enjoying the little bit that I can do!

Butterflies Galore SK WIP Update

During these past 3 to 4 weeks, I have been going back to work part time and still doing my physiotherapy.  I am having a very hard time with my work, and a lot of my pain has returned.  So I have not been doing too much cross stitching.  I have been stitching my Butterflies Galore StoryKeep.  The picture below is what I had done about a month ago, the same time I was working on the kawaii sushi.

I had some colors missing so I had to wait to get those before I continued.  About a couple of weeks later I had done most of her face.  She was starting to look really pretty!

A couple of weeks later still I had almost completed the first page, minus a few stitches and gone on to the second page with the butterflies!

She looks Amazing with her hair framing her face!  I am looking forward to finishing this piece, even though I am very slow, especially since my injury.
