Australia sampler

Years ago my mother started this Australia sampler for my father. She got a poor eyesight over the years, so now I’m going to finish it for my parents. I share a weekly update to keep me going.
This week I started stitching the kangaroo, 
the black thread is the halfway point of this sampler.
 
A detail from the original pattern.

Australia sampler

Years ago my mother started this Australia sampler for my father. She got a poor eyesight over the years, so now I’m going to finish it for my parents. I share a weekly update to keep me going.
I didn’t add many stitches to this sampler during my blogbreak. I managed to finish the floral part and a broken statue. Just added the last backstitches before making these photos.
And this is how the Australia sampler looks now.
I already gathered the threads for the kangaroo, which is the next item to stitch. It will go over the halfway point of the sampler!
