Notes:
Skipped the last one or two progress pics because I kept thinking “I’m almost there, I’m almost there”. Turns out I wasn’t ­čśŤ oops.One reason I┬áhate these kits is the floss. I often run out before the design is finished, especially with Dimensions kits, made even worse because I have to track down the coordinating DMC┬ánumber. I ran out of all three greens in the trees, black, and one of the dragonfly golds (my own fault on that one because I used 2 strands instead of one).

I really hated this when I first started on it, which is probably why it was put on the backburner for so long, but quite enjoyed it when I got back into it in 2010.

Finished; 230 hours; 27 January 2011
