Well I completely restarted it a couple of days ago :) I wasn't really happy with the 28 count fabric that I started it on so I'm using a white 32 count opalescent that I found whilst going through my fabric the other day. I'm also using different colours - Silk 'N' Colours "Papyrus Leaf" for the four corners and "Jewel of the Nile" for the centre. "Jewel of the Nile" is what is called for in the chart but I didn't realise that at the time I was choosing colours - I just picked what appealed to me :)
I finished stitching the first corner this morning, just need to add the Rhodes stitches later ...*sigh* and just for something completely different Blogger won't upload photos so I'm using Webshots. Just click on the picture if you want a closer look.
Thanks for the comments on our candid family shot - we certainly kept the people in the line behind us entertained - lol! And, Kim, you're right, these sorts of shots are the "real" family pics. They will be the ones that trigger the memories later in life :)
