I'm sticking it out ;)

Well, thanks to the encouragement of so many of you I've decided to stick with St. Petersburg. I finished the beading on part V but not the back stitching. I'll do the back stitching a little at a time as I work on part VI. You can see the beginnings of part VI in the upper left corner.


I hope everyone has had a good weekend.

You will be happy that you decided to continue with St. Petersburg. Just remember every little stitch brings you closer to the finish of this project. :-) Hope you have a wonderful day!

Great job stitching to St. Pete. Chatelaines are so beautiful, but they can get frustrating at time.

It is so gorgeous, I know how you feel with projects that are overwhelming and frustrating. I have quilts that are that way, and the Mermaid cross stitch I did was that way for me too. Just take your time, we aren’t racing LOL! (at least that I what I am telling myself)
