As you can see, coming along much faster than Poirot did. There are 2 tie down stitches to do in the 2 diagonal "blocks" and then the center motif and its done! Hopefully I will not run out of thread. I was reading over in the Yahoo group for people stitching these and at least one person has run out, I tend to pull tight when I'm stitching which should amount to slightly less thread used but we'll see when its all done if I make it. I hate to buy a whole additional card of the Grandeur if I run out, it would seem more practical to see if there is another thread in the pile that will make an acceptable substitute since there are 2 other similar colored threads. So far it looks like I'll be ok though so I'll worry about what I'm going to do when I get there. I worked on this at Sit and Stitch last night (I'm being a rebel and not doing the group project with everyone) and then decided to work a bit more on it when I got home since I was making so much progress so I got to try out my Elan lap stand and I LOVE it! I had tried putting this in the Gazelle and its just too small and akward with such a small frame but the small lap stand was perfect.
