Newest Stitching Project - Earthdancer

This piece is for our niece, Terri H here in GA.  I bought it several years ago, but was a bit lazy and didn't begin working on her until January 23 and I've stitched several hours each day.  I'm really surprised at how much I've finished and hope to keep it up. She is stitched 2 over 2 on 28-count Prairie Grain Linen using all the recommended DMC threads.

Isn't she gorgeous; I can't wait to get all the stitching done so that I can add all the beads, specialty threads and what little backstitching there is.  You know, all that stuff that makes a piece really pop.

I think that if I can keep this pace going and don't have to frog too much, she'll be finished within 2 months.  Keep your toes crossed for me that all goes well.
