Four months are gone since my last post, everyday life doesn't let me have all the free time I would like to have for embroidery so I made a promise to myself that I would not post untill the castle was finished, this to push me to do as much as possible but I realized that going ahead so slow, people will probably forget this Blog :)
So the castle is not finished, the left tower is not completed, the roof is waiting for tiles and some final touches are still to be made but here it goes ! And I can say I'm pretty happy with the result.
The ground under it maybe was the most difficult part, the colour arrangement of the drizzle stitch and keeping a sense of continuity in the whole thing is something that needs a good attention. It's easy to focus on the element one is working on and "forgetting" what's near or under it so the risk of loosing that sense of "going all together" is always around the corner specially if one doesn't stitch everyday or has long pauses in between.
I'm determinate to complete it soon so...watch this space ! and let me know your thinkings too !

|And the pear tree is growing too.|
|All the embroidery was made upsidedown, so here you can see my stitching view ...not the best but I can't reach the|
top from the correct side as the frame is too big...longer arms pleeaseee !
