Secret garden or mystery X

It is some time since I posted but I have been stitching away. I have now completed this end of the piece. I am now beginning work on the bushes at the other side of the two buildings. This is the part I thought I had done. I have decided to work the border as I go along because it is very repetitive if left to the end. I am enjoying doing this again. Thank you all for your lovely comments last time. seeing other members' progress really does keep you motivated. I am hoping to get quite a bit done this weekend because the weather is pretty poor. Have a good stitching weekend everyone.

Beautiful!! This is another one that I have in my stash. I'm stalled on Part 2. You've inspired me to get it out to work on again soon.

It is looking beautiful. You've been making lots of progress. I like the colours. Hope you haven't any interruptions this weekend so that you can really get lots done. Glad you're enjoying it again. Happy stitching.

It looks really intricate but you're making a smashing job of it.

Can't wait to see more,

Great progres! What were the backstitch gares like to do and did you do them at one go or intersperse them with some cross stitch? I am up to the gates in White Nights and am dreading them!

The detail work, the beading, the cross-stitching...everything is stitched beautifully. Looking forward to your next progress pic.
