Update SPWN

Here it is, the piece that will never end. Sorry I have another out of focus pic, but the battery is dying on my camera. I really had to force myself to work on St. Pete's this week. Those mansions have gotten quite boring. And yet as I've said before it is just beautiful. But I will be so glad when I am finished this thing.
On a sad note, someone I've known for 15 years died this past weekend. She taught two of my kids at the school they attend. It was exactly one year ago that she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Today was supposed to be the first day of school but out of respect for her (her funeral was today) school will start tomorrow instead. She is no longer in any pain, she is in her glorified body in Heaven, and I look forward to meeting her there someday. Until that day, I will miss you Judy.

I have found that if I put a piece away, eventually a day comes when I want to work on it again, in fact can't wait to work on it and can't stop thinking about it. I am working on a ufo know that had been put away for several months and I have 2 other ufos that I can't stop thinking about working on. It's looking absolutely amazing but don't force it, it will happen naturally.

So sorry for your loss. And you are right, at least she is free from pain and will not suffer any longer.

SPWN looks great! I'm sure it does get tiresome, but think how gorgeous it will be when completed!!!!

So sorry to hear of your friend's passing. {{{hugs}}}

St Pete's is so beautiful. I can imagine it must get a little boring working on the same bit several times but it does look stunning.

I'm so sorry about your friend :o( I can imagine she is in a much better place now and pain free.

Your SP(A)WN is looking so beautiful! I can certainly understand why you are getting sick of it though. Plug away! We're here to cheer you on ;o)

I am sorry to hear about the loss of your friend.

This project seems to be coming along nicely. Keep up the great work and it will be over before you know it. I usually do the really boring bits of the cross stitch while watching a movie. Quite often I find that I have finished a huge amount that way without really even noticing.
