Progress Is Progress

And we actually have the appearance of my "real" project today!
Ganesha hasn't seen a needle since 2009! And this is how he was then

I decided on a two pronged plan of attack. An hour of tackling the boring background (which stitches up pretty fast) and two hours of the main design (which is a confetti filled monstrosity that does not seem to progress!)

Blu, it's BEAUTIFUL! I think you have a good system worked out. Background can be such a pain!

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

I'm so glad you put the before pic up so we can clearly see what great progress you've made.
Hopefully we'll see more of this one this year.

Keep up the good work. This is quite a project.

You've gotten quite a bit done. I hate confetti stitching. It's a PitA in my book.

Hugs,
Veronica.

Wonderful progress. On my last
BAP, I would stitch on the background for a little while, then on the backstitching for a while and then on the main design. It worked for me.
