After weeks of niggly detail, I finally felt that I was making progress, as I started to outline the boat in the corner of this design.
It was also a relief to my eyes, as I worked on some stronger colours, which made it much easier to see the stitches! Although I have a good light with a magnifier for close work, it was far too hot to sit under it to work, so I had to work during daylight hours when there was adequate light. I persevered and the boat and netting started to come together. It took eight days to finish the boat - this gives you an idea of the amount of detail.
