Schoolhouse Cross Stitch (in progress)

I was browsing Patterns Online one afternoon and came across this great design called Schoolhouse by Teresa Wentzler...
It's a small little project but it packs a punch! As you can see there all the threads are blended and there are lots of confetti stitches so it is very time consuming....
I decided to try a technique called 'Parking' hence all the hanging threads, but found it wasn't really my thing...
Overall, I didn't get very far and think I may be in over my head with this one, soooooo not sure when I'll return to it. : /

Teresa Wentzler is quite well known for her blending of threads and complicated patterns even on a small scale but if you stick with it the results are well worth it :)

Don't let it become a UFO - looking at the rest of your work I'm sure you can do it!

Thank you so much for dropping by and leaving some words of encouragement on this one! I do love the finished piece and when the time is right, I'm sure I'll tackle it again. One (blended) stitch at a time, right?! :)
