Bothy Thread Cut Thru Monday SAL...

I have made fabulous progress over the last week with my Bothy Threads Cut Thru' castle.  A big thanks to Linda for hosting this SAL!!!


As you can see I have stitched below the King's chamber and the Dragon's Den is forming including the Green and Red Dragon himself! What a fun picture is developing.  This first page of the pattern is almost finished. Due to your advice dear readers, I will attempt to backstitch as I go, hence I will backstitch this page once I have finished the cross stitch.

If you happened to miss my YouTube video from 10 days ago about my collection of Bothy Thread kits click on the link below:
 
 
Have fabulous weekend! I am off to sunny and warm Sydney escaping the Spring cool of Tassie. Not much stitching will be had. I will have a lovely time with my husband who is attending a special awards ceremony to acknowledge the completion of specialist doctor training in obstetrics and gynaecology. Much work and sacrifice has been had to complete it over the last 7 years.
