Progress on Defender of the Kingdom

I've just finished my first HAED BB SAL (how's that for a lot of acronyms all at once?). I spent the weekend working on Thomas Canty's Defender of the Kingdom. I had a lovely time stitching it and wish I could have done more, but my CFS raised its head and insisted I couldn't do as much as I wanted. All the same, I'm very pleased with my progress.

The SAL is "officially" the Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday of the second weekend of the month. In order to give myself time to finish Alpine Seasons on Friday, I decided to stitch on US time, which meant I actually used Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday in New Zealand time. This turned out to be better for me as it includes on day when Marcus is at daycare (when I sleep) and one day when he's home (and I have to be up so I stitch). So I'm going to stick with this in future.

Anyway, enough on my rambling and on to the pictures.
