Progress on Cut Thru Garden Shed

I have been working intermittently on my Garden Shed.  Yesterday I decided to make a start on the back stitch as I hate back stitch and thought it might become a UFO once the cross stitch was complete.  Once I started the back stitch I found I couldn't put it down.  I was amazing how the design sprang to life as each little bit was outlined.  So far I have completed 2 pages of back stitch and once I have done the last page on the left I will finish stitching the middle bottom section and back stitch the middle column too.  As a leftie this means I won't have to hold what I have already completed then.

So without further ado, here's my progress...

Rachael finished school on Friday and was voted pupil of the year in her form which was a lovely way for her to end the year.

It looks absolutely stunning!
I don't like backstitch either but I enjoy the stitching on Bothy, it stitches so easily, and makes such a difference to the design! Happy stitching!

What a great and fun design! I try to backstitch as I go... its not that I hate backstitch but its just nice to get as much done as possible or the BS drags on forever!
