Kangaroo, Progress #5

Kangaroo?  What kangaroo, you are asking!  Those of you who have been with me a long time, may remember this charming fellow, although I haven't posted about (or worked on) him for a very long time.  Mr. Kangaroo is a cross stitch chart I purchased in Australia at least 5 years ago.  I got him out recently because 1. I'd really like to finish it, 2. I hate working on it because I am using some rayon floss, and 3. It is small and easy to handle.

So, here he is today, well actually last week.  I have worked on it some since I took the photo and the rayon floss parts are finished. Finally!  I do hate that stuff.  Now for lots of French Knot flowers and a ton of backstitching.  Am I the only person in the world who HATES to do cross stitch?

A month has gone by!

Hello, yes I know, almost a whole month since I last posted.
As some of you know, I have been quite ill beginning the end of March.  I am feeling better now, but still not fully recovered nor able to put in a full day!
I have been stitching, although not my usual number of hours.  I hope to start posting again next week, if I can get some pictures taken :-) .
Just an FYI.
