Charlie's Ark

My latest cross stitch project is this piece.

It is called 'Charlie & Sally' but I've renamed it 'Charlie & Courtney.' I have had it for a couple of years and did make a start on the little girl's head and a little of her dress, then it was abandoned. I didn't really know at the time why I lost interest, I just did. A few weeks ago I was reminded about this kit by my friend Tree. I was totally inspired again and I realised that it was because I was stitching on aida, the fabric supplied with the kit. Once I got going on evenweave there was no stopping me. I have to admit that due to the heat I have been a little intermittent recently in my stitching but the little girl is now complete, she's delightful! (I took this photo whilst at Chorley crop yesterday and have since stitched the rainbow.)
