Hey everyone, hope you are all well this fine day. I took a small break from Elegance during the week, as I was pretty tired after work and all that back stitching requires very close attention. I still wanted to work on a cross stitch project so I decided to pick up Blossoming Spring. This is a chart from The Ultimate Forest Friends Cross Stitch Collection and I absolutely love it. You can see my last progress post on this piece here. I adore cherry blossom trees, and dream of having them in my own garden one day, but until then this will have to take their place.

Despite the fact that the stitches in this project tend to wander around all over the place it can be quite relaxing to work on. The trick is to do it in sections, filling in each colour as I go along in a particular cluster of blossoms. It becomes much easier to then base subsequent colours on the stitches already in place, provided they are correct of course.
However as I was working away happily on the grass I realised that I had made a mistake and will have to frog some of it to re stitch it right. It’s not a big mistake and won’t take long to fix but it meant that I couldn’t go any further on the grass without rectifying the problem. As I wanted a nice relaxed stitching session I decided to leave it for now and come back to it when my concentration was better.
