Almost there .....

So I spent the week concentrating on the lions....and am happy to report that there is only 5,764 more stitches to go! Ummmm.......maybe puttingit like that wasn't such a god idea - seems like a pretty daunting number to get through!

So here's the lions when I last left them in Feb

Power and Grace - 20 February 2012
And this is how far I cam until last night

Power and Grace - 11 March 2012

So Daddy lion's face is about done and I now need to fill in the background, which will hopefully go a lot faster - you cannot tell but there are lots of subtle colour changes and blending in the lions.

Tonight I'll make a start my "Dawn of Spring" SAL which Mouse had sent this weekend. The grand plan had been to get started with it on Saturday, but that's a story for another day!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and are now ready to tackle whatever this week has in store for you :)

Take care x x

Your lions are looking outstanding. I love the little cub on the mother's neck!

5764, eh? LOL No, I don't think putting it like that would make *me* feel any better about my chances of finishing a piece. Some day i have to see how many stitches I get put in on a "good" night. Hmm, I do think I have the evening free.

P.S. Looking great!
