May was a good month for working on my Ranger. I completed over 4000 stitches, which is a record for me, and also completed page 2 (as of 6am this morning)! I'm excited about that and am looking forward to getting going on page 3, which is where Strider will finally appear. Since page 4 is only about 5 rows wide, my plan is to carry right through that when I reach the width of page 3. I work 20 rows down all the way across a page and then go back and do the next 20, mainly because I'm impatient to see the whole width.
I've also started work on the first of a series of 4 banners for church. I've had the vision for a long time and thought I really ought to start making it become real. As with various other projects, my challenge is tearing myself away from cross-stitching long enough to work on anything else. When I do finish it, I'll post a photo.
Meanwhile, here is where I've reached in Ranger:
