Progress has been made!
Not bad for two evenings of stitching, Monday and tonight. The outline of the lute is pretty easy to see now, and I've started to fill it in. Poor thing needs a head, though!
I wish I could stay up and stitch, but I'm already sleep deprived this week, and tonight's not going to help that situation. Getting up at 5:15 should be illegal... *sigh*
