Four Counties Ring

As promised yesterday, here is an update on the map I'm stitching.

I'm starting to get worried that it won't be finished by 2nd May. I've done 10 of the 18 scenes, still got to finish the boarder and stitch the title "Four Counties Ring". I guess I'm about half way, but I've used up more than half the time. I've also still got to add french knots as flowers to every scene. It's going to be very tight. I'd like to have it in a frame by Dad's birthday but that is looking very unlikely, even if I do get it finished in time.

I'm still itching to stitch other things as well, but so far have resisted the temptation. I so want to finish Fruit Smoothie and do the April square of Juggy Bugs - I'll have to do that with the May square now. Oh dear, the temptation we are all fighting I guess - just so many things I want to do and only 24 hours in a day. If anybody finds a few more hours, let me know where they are! lol.
