I forget to take loads of progress shots these days. I'm usually so intensely stitching over a short amount of time that I don't come up for air, let alone take a work in progress pic. Plus, a lot of customers are on instagram and I like to keep a little element of surprise for them. This means I'm then sent excited photos of embroideries in-situ or, more excitingly for me, with the pet themselves! These photos really do make my day.
