Lily bookmark

I have spent 3 evenings working on my Lily bookmark, a Christmas present for my Auntie. I am enjoying it a lot. Stitching on the plastic canvas is ok, but the chart is a pain as some of the symbols are the same just in blue or black. In the un natural light at night I am finding it hard to distinguish between the blue and black!!! I am hoping I can get this complete by Sunday night if I continue as well as I have been doing.



News about my Auntie is that she will probably go into hospital next Monday for her operation. So fingers crossed that all goes well.
Sorry just a short posting tonight, I have just returned from Stitching Club and I am tired again. I think I'll stitch a little more than have an early night.

I have never done anything yet on plastic canvas before, is it a bit slippy to work with, all my bok marks i use leftover aida bits, then i fray edges,

Hoping all goes well for your Auntie and she is soon on the road to a full recovery.
Lily looks great, can you make a 'working copy' of the chart and enlarge it so you can see the symbols better, i sometimes have to do that with kits.
