The between project...
The bottom is as of today.
It is more of a white fabric with 815 dmc, more like the top photo.
I had stitched the upper right corner at some point. I started this time in the lower left working across the bottom. Three corners are established. I am making little changes all the time - but since layout is based on placement off of other letters, I have to keep track of points that are not changing to count off of for the next letter placement. Some of the pattern letters just look goofy. I will omit some and then replace them with others at the end. I can stitch points that I am not changing and then work from there. I both love this project and hate this project.
I am stitching it because C is for Charlie - but the pattern seems to be just as frustrating as Charlie. I do like that there is a phoenix in the pattern since I always felt Charlie would bloom from the boy into an incredible man. But at the end of our multiple conversations - he just confused the crap out of me. Life is too short to deal with men like that. See Ya Charlie. May you arise from the ashes next time to be a better man.
