March YOTA update

YOTA - Meaning Year Of The Acronym is the creation at Pull The Other Thread. The goal (at least for me) is to work on a UFO or WIP that you don't normally work on in your rotation. For me the piece that I am working on is one I started years ago, but because of it's size, I just put it away to work on something a bit smaller and easier to stitch. I really love this design though, so when I found the YOTA Challenge, I decided that I would set aside one weekend a month to get this back out and stitch on it. I'm so glad I did too, because it's becoming one of my favorite things to stitch on:)

 
This is where I was after January's YOTA. I fell behind on my ornie that month and was still stitching my Jan ornie during the time of the February YOTA, so I wasn't able to participate last month.

 
And here I am as of this morning. It is slow going, but I love the colors and the nature feel to it.

And here is a pic of the finished design. Yes, I'm just working on the little bench in the center. If worked over 2 like it calls for, this design would end up being around 18x22 in. I'm doing mine over one on 28 ct so it'll be around 9x11, much better in my mind:) There are a couple more that Marjolein Bastin has done that I would like to stitch as well, but that will have to be for another day - or year!!

I just joined YOTA too. This is a pretty chart. I have never tried 28 ct over one. I hope there aren't any quarter stitches!
