Slow Sunday stitching my counted linen embroidery

I have dragged out my embroidery that has been hidden away in the cupboard for months. Well, when I looked back at my posts it hasn't been worked on since March 2014. It is on my UFO resolution list. I was in the mood for this type of stitching. This is where this project began...
Where I am up to with the embroidery

Pattern from Christine Bishop
This is where I am up to now.... Progress... Both borders are complete.
I finished the inner and outer border
Let's see what I feel like doing next...

  9. Oh such a timeless piece! Now that the borders on in place it should be a bit more fun to work on. Great job for pulling it out and adding a few more slow stitches! Eventually it will get completed!
