I decided to put The Hermit away for a little while and get back to work on The Witching Hour. I forgot how much greys and blacks there are in WH. It's been moving pretty quickly as it's fairly easy to stitch blocks of one color at a time as opposed to having to switch thread every few stitches. The former can become monotonous and boring but the latter is just plain annoying.
See all that black?! That was about 800 stitches which took me about 3 days. I had the most massive headache for days and had to put all stitching away for almost a week. I think I am going to need glasses one of these days.
Here is my progress over the last week.
