This project was called for my WIPGO board for February. Don't know what WIPGO is? Here is a link to the best explanation. I doubt I will get 8 hours in this piece before the end of the month, but I have gotten a little bit done. Mainly, reverse stitching.

Then I tried a different thread:
Much better. So I ripped the other threads out and started stitching.
Then I could find a bright thread that has the neon colors and place it in the squares. I will sleep on this and decide in the morning.
