Apologies for the lack of updates, I was lured away from the house by my new allotment, i've still been stitching, but not as much as usual.
I have finally finished page one & I love how it looks, here is a picture full size, I had to take it outside to find room to take a picture today, I popped a pen in the picture for scale, but not sure you can see it
and here is a close up
I've estimated I used approx 45 skeins of thread in this first page eek! Onto page two now, I will try to remember to post more update pictures, hopefully once per week at least.
