The Final Stretch

Hi all! I thought it was high time I shared some stitching on this here stitching blog! I have been working on my BAP Farmhouse design for most of the summer. When I posted my last picture before my long break, it looked liked this:
But I have been able to work on it a lot more since then, and it now looks like this!

There are only two more animal sections to complete once I have finished the cows. But alas, these last two bits are fraught with difficulty. You see, I was very young when I first bought this pattern and attempted it for the first time. Twelve-year-old me, very ignorantly, has scribbled over the only copy of the pattern in black biro! Oh the horror!
But all is not lost. You can still make out the symbols of the pattern if you look closely. It's going to take a lot of concentration, but I'm determined to finish this piece this year. I never thought I would even come close to finishing a design this big, but now I really am on the home stretch :)
I start back at Uni on Monday, which also happens to be my 21st birthday :) I celebrated with my friends yesterday with a tea party, I'll be sure to post about that soon.
Best wishes,

Happy 21st!

You might try photocopying the sections and enlarging them. That might make it easier to read!
