I realized, after my otherÂ posts about this cross-stitch project, that I had been referring to the animal as a moose, when in fact, it is an elk. Oops.
Anyway, I finished most of the tree & greenery on the long car ride to the beach, but the project didn’t get much attention while we were there – too many games to play, meals to eat, and relatives to hang out with. We took a trip up to my in-laws’ over the 4th of July, and I got a good way through the tan grasses at the bottom. I primarily have the rest of the grass and lots of sky left. But I have a feeling that I’m going to wind up with some holes to fill at the end, since my “pattern” doesn’t have exact colors on it… we’ll see. In the meantime I’ve gotten distracted with my sewing machine & other power tools, so this probably won’t get worked on again until the next long car trip – in just a few weeks.
