Looking at the bee again today! Here’s where we were six weeks ago:

In-progress shot of a counted cross-stitch project, featuring two big pink flowers on a orange and red background.

And this is today:

In progress picture of a colourful cross-stitch-project of a bee featuring the red-orange-yellow background on the opper left of the image.

This is the upper left corner of the pattern, and I’ll make my way to the right from there. You may notice that the numbers I drew in for counting out the pattern seem to be awfully close to the last stitches here – looks like a miscounted at the very start and the whole image is shifted 10 stitches left from where it was supposed to be. Luckily I left just enough space for this not to be a problem in the end. There’s one small dot that should be up in the corner that would touch the zero line that’s now partially covered by the numbers, and I’ve decided to leave that out in order to not make finishing more difficult at the end. I’m now at 13,53% done, onwards to 15!

Here are the other members of the SAL who are posting today. Make sure to check out their work, it’s amazing: Avis, Claire, Gun, Christina, Kathy, Margaret, Cindy, Heidi, Jackie, Sunny, Megan, Deborah, Renee, Carmela, Sharon, Daisy, Anne, AJ, Cathie, Linda and Helen.
