YOTA Update - May

Yesterday was the first Saturday of the month and time for the YOTA (Year of the Acronym) UFO SAL update hosted by Pull the Other Thread.  Universal Unity is a Dimensions Gold Collection kit that I started in 1998.

Here is the before pic from the April YOTA post:
Universal Unity (before)
I stitched more grass under the tiger.  There are many different symbols for the grass with 3 strands of floss, blending 2 of one color and 1 of another color. I love the effect!
Universal Unity update #16
Which animal should I stitch next, the zebra or the ram?

I vote for the zebra, the black and white will be a nice contrast.

Don't you love all these different shades of green? I also have a project with many different greens and it's a wonderful effect with all of these.
I think I'd go for the zebra, I can't say why.

Well done! One can definitely see progress. I vote zebra! (speaking of zebras the last time I went to the zoo the male zebra was up to some naughty stuff ... but the female zebra was unimpressed and just walked off).

I would say stitch the zebra... But I was thinking do the ram and then the zebra... I always try to leave the best one til last!
