Parisian Street - 3 Weeks Update

Here's a little update on my WIP.

Week 4 - I finally completed my flosses for the chart. So, I concentrated on filling the 'holes', e.g. the windows and the tables.

Week 5 - I usually complete the cross-stitches, then do the back-stitches. But that time, I was impatient to see the finished-look of my cafe and did the back-stitches on the completed part instead of moving on to build the next storey.

Week 6 - I started to build the third storey of my cafe, at the same time I finished my first cat for the Margaret Sherry's Culinary Cat SAL (I will soon post a picture of it).

Parisian Street - Week 3

I haven’t had a chance to post an update on my WIP last weekend, so here it is.
I was building my 2nd storey of the café.

I still don't have several of my flosses, because they aren’t available at the local store. I’m missing the blanc, 762, and 632. So, I’m still having a few ‘holes’ on my piece. Hoping to complete my flosses as soon as possible.

And this month I start the Margaret Sherry SAL. It's the first time I join a specific SAL, choosing 3 out of 6 Culinary Cat patterns. I will start my first cat this weekend.
