FnwF February 2018 - A Lot of Outlining!

Although the start of February passed me by, and I forgot to sign up, I did manage to join in with Cheryl's FnwF. Follow the link to find who did sign up and what they got up to!

You may have guessed it, but I spent Friday evening working on the outlining for Beauty and the Beast. I got the second of 4 pages done, and moved on to the third.

On Monday, I found a picture from a year ago courtesy of Facebook. It's the bottom left corner of the cross-stitch, and there's quite a lot of green but not much else. 

I reckon I managed to do about half the stitching in a year. There is hope the other 4 won't take 4 years each!!! But this finish is edging tantalisingly closer (just some outlining and so many french knots to do!)

I hope you all had a lovely FnwF.


  1. That's a big piece and you've done so much. I found your blog through you posting on Blogger of the Week, nice to meet you.

  2. Your Beauty and Beast is amazing.

  3. Amazing progress. I have a question for you. I think this kit is by Candamar designs. Do you have contact info for them? Is it safe to wash the finsihed projects if using kit thread?

  4. So close, so exciting! Are you going to get it framed as soon as you're finished?!

  5. Isn't it great when the end is so close! Glad you enjoyed your Friday night. xx

  6. Oh my, Bethan, what an amazing project this is. And the backstitches and outlining just does the trick. It looks wonderful so far.

  7. I can't wait to see this piece with all the backstitching! It is already gorgeous and I am sure that will make it even more stunning.

  8. That is an incredible piece and a tribute to how much you can do when you focus on a piece.
