Faithful April update #1

I can't believe the first week of April is already behind us! For the whole of this month I have committed to stitching on one project only - Cut Thru Rocket by Bothy Threads.

Here is my progress to date:


And here's where it was at the start of April:


It doesn't look like much at first glance but I've added another floor to the Rocket - the astronaut's bedroom.  I'm pretty pleased with my progress and am still on target (just) to finish six pages of nine by the end of the month.

Thanks for cheering me on!

WOW Justine! Your needle must be smoking!!! Huge impressive progress!!! I haven't made anywhere near that much progress.
Keep stitching, you're doing really well.

That's a lot of progress for one week considering the amount of time you have (or haven't) spent stitching. Well done!! It just goes to show how much you can achieve if you put your mind to it. :)

Justine, you can be so pleased with your progress on this piece. It's very impressive as these Cut-Thru projects have so much detail. When you go on like that all through April your will have a very big part of the rocket stitched by the end of the month.
