Chalk & Cheese WIP After 8 Hours

Chalk & Cheese WIP After 8 Hours
Originally uploaded by Rathgild.
Here's an update on the Chalk and Cheese cross stitch kit. I've spent about 8 hours on it at this point and have most of the body of one mouse complete. The weird gap in the darker shade on the back is where the nose of the other mouse will be stitched.

The background fabric is white but I took this picture without flash under artificial light so it looks quite orangy. There are some other pictures taken in natural light on my flickr site where you can see the natural colours.

It's taken a long time but I'm now stitching again. Nothing particularly big as I want to get some finishes fairly quickly.

I've bought this Chalk and Cheese kit from Sew and So and I'm taking a picture after each hour's work to chart my progress.
