Yes, it's true. I finally have a cross stitch update. I got the gold Kreinik thread I needed and am thrilled with how much it adds to the picture. It doesn't show up as well in the photo, but it's the border of the green at the bottom of the dress. I also have the grey Kreinik which is the backstitch accent for the wings. I won't do the grey or gold backstitching until all the cross stitching is completed; that Kreinik thread is too fragile to be rolled up when I am between work times. We're getting back to the lovely, quiet Sunday afternoons again and that means time to cross stitch. So here is a picture of my current progress. Hope you like it!
