Beginning to paint a bit too

I decided to split the stitching with the painting, just to vary things a bit.  I'm beginning to build up the roots which is quite fun now I've sorted out what I'm doing and how I'm going to do it!  I was really worried about this one coming together, but then just after lunch I looked at it and smiled, knowing the plan was possible.
