All the x's are finally done

Now down to the rest of the backstitching and specialty stitches... that shouldn't take long, but I did leave all of those silly eyelet stitch windows to do on the big central building. I like that part the least... will continue to forge on, almost done now!

Thank you to those who sent birthday wishes to Mike :-) He turned 46 today - and opted for a quiet birthday. He got plenty of nice gifts, and he got to choose all the plans for the day.... errands he wanted to run, out to lunch together, things like that.... The weekend isn't over, of course, so who knows if he has any other plans. He had a fleeting thought of going down to Boston today to catch a Red Sox game, until he was reminded that they had the night off tonight - oh well.

Stitched on today: Medieval Town Mandala

MTM is marvelous! I like eyelet stitches - sometimes I get too enthusiastic with my pulling and the eye is a bit too large. :D

Glad Mike enjoyed his birthday, and did things he likes to do.

Congrats, Carol. You made a great work...I'd not be able to stitch this kind of designs, too difficult and long.
