Before anyone worries, I haven't abandoned my Christmas cross stitch, but I've been working on it since August and I needed a break.

Cross Stitching On (SAL Update)

Progress is a bit scattered on this one. Lots of chunks of different greens. I've been picking a colour and following it around the pattern so I'm not focusing on one leaf like I was last time.
