Part of the wing.

I have started on Madam Butterfly.  The chart on the right shows I have worked around the outside outline, marking off each set of stitches as I go.  She recommends doing the cross stitch portion of the Smyrna cross stitch all the way around the entire chart and then coming back and doing the + over the top of the base stitches after they are all in place.  I am doing the cross stitch portion with the recommended #5 Perle Cotton.  This is some serious counting!

The chart called for black canvas but as you can see I chose to use gray instead.
