Coffee Admirers is done. I definitely still hate French knots. (And I totally cheated and used Colonial knots.) Back stitching wasn’t too bad, though I did take a break in the middle of it to power through some knitting, because it is definitely more boring than the cross stitch sections.
I guess this spells the end of my Russian pattern obsession, for at least a bit. I definitely have no feelings of ill will towards the designers themselves, but that’s something I won’t be comfortable looking at for a while.
