Out of Season

My Tree of Stitches is growing rather slowly, so I thought I'd share a picture of my newest biscornu:

This is The Sweetheart Tree's Spring Blossoms Biscornu. Yes, I started a spring stitch in the middle of summer when everyone is gearing up for fall & Halloween.

I decided to stitch both the top and the bottom at the same time. However I'm finding the leaves annoying. See how I have two colours extruding? Counting just the green cross stitch is impossible and I have to backstitch as I go. I am not a fan of having two colours going at the same time. I suppose I could end and restart everytime but that seems excessive.

In fun news, I received an absolutely wonderful letter from my secret penpal (organized by the ever impressive Parsley).

It looks wonderful though!!! Keep up the good work, and it'll be done soon. Glad you got a good letter.

I love your biscornus and The Sweetheart Tree pattrns/kits are my favourites too.
I have "P is for Princess"-kit waiting for me to start it :)

It's going to be so pretty though!
I have to confess that although I love the looks of Sweetheart Tree designs, I tend to stay away from them because of all the backstitching. I don't enjoy it at all!
