A slight obsession with books

Winnie the Pooh calendar – July

This section seems to have taken ages. There’s so much of it. As well as WtP, there’s his picnic basket, all that grass, the flowers and finally those fiddly, fiddly bees. And lots and lots of backstitch, which I did as I went along, as much as I could.

I tell you, all those fractional stitches on 18 ct Aida are just no joke. I really wish I was working on evenweave as it’s driving me nuts. It is rather satisfying to finish each section though and July was one of the largest so I’m very happy that it’s done. August has a lot less in it so I started a very small project last night to give me a break from the larger ones.
