YOTA - August

Today is 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.

I missed July since I was on vacation, but here is the before pic from the June YOTA post:
Universal Unity (before)
I started filling in the stripes of the zebra.  You'd think they were only white, but there are actually 5 different symbols and some of them are tweeded (blended) colors of different strands of floss!
Universal Unity update #19
My goal is to finish the zebra and the grass around him and the backstitching for the next YOTA update!

Great progress on this piece. I know this kind of pictures where you have so many different whites and greens etc. They are a bit tricky to stitch because of all the colour changes but they look gorgeous.

Abolutely beautiful!! You are doing amazing work on this piece. I love seeing the updates on this once a month. Good luck with your goal for next month.

Blending makes a project seem to go so slowly doesn't it? Yet the effects are marvellous when done - so it's worth the effort. Looking forward to seeing more progress next month.
