I was doing quite well with this design until I decided I wasn't totally happy doing 2x1 tent stitch on 28ct with all the confetti that's in this piece.
I ripped it all out and have restarted it Friday doing 1x1 full crosses. I'm much happier with it and my fingers are more than happy that they are no longer being pierced by the needle while trying to work it through the fabric.
The top pic is how it was looking before and the bottom is how it's looking after 2 days of stitching. I started at the bottom of the page this time.
