YOTA Update No. 2 - Elegance of the Orient

It's the first Saturday of the month, so it's YOTA post day. I'm very happy with my progress since last month. Elegance now has all the cross stitching in the female figure done except the bit of frogging that I have to do in one of the flowers. I also started on the some of the half cross. I finished off the stitching under the figure and some in the cherry blossom tree.

Last year I was flitting between this project and Somebunny to Love, which I managed to finish off recently, for YOTA. I'm happy to be back to being able to work on this exclusively for this SAL.

I would like to thank all my wonderful readers for continuing to check out my blog and leave me such amazing comments. I hope all those involved in YOTA are having fun with the SAL this year and it is helping you to get some of those UFO projects finished.
