Lots of stitching has occurred, mainly due to the large amount of time I’ve spent squirming uncomfortably on the sofa, trying to find a position where my back didn’t hurt.
There’s a lot of counting in this pattern, and the general effect doesn’t necessarily reflect how long I’ve spent on it – and that’s not including the unpicking and re-doing bits! Here’s where we were 3 weeks ago. You don’t get a good sense of the pattern repeat at the top yet:

As always, it’s worth your while visiting the other SAL stitchers, even if they’re not posting progress today. Don’t forget about the difference in time zones; if you’re seeing me first, you may need to drop in to theirs a bit later to give them a chance to get their posts up.
