I don't know if my last comment posted or not...Anyways, just wanted to say that you are allowed a much deserved break on this piece! You've gotten more done on this than I have on the deer in the last few months. Take a break, feel good about it, and come back in 2011 refreshed for cross stitching! It looks really good, by the way. Like, enough is done that you are to the point where it has to be completed now. You can't give up!
