July TIF

What does it mean to be at the Half-Way Mark? that is the TIF challenge for July.
We're half - way through the year and the challenge.
How does one interpret the half-way mark ? The phrase to me means - time to look back and assess the path taken so far, a time for evaluating methods and means to achieve the final goal and there is a sense of achievement to have got thus far. With all that said I've decided to interpret only one word "Way" and the colour palette I'm using is loosely based on the suggested colour palette for the month.
I've cross-stitched a quote by Joseph Campbell on the left hand page using the absolutely cool free online text tool by Stitch Point ( thank-you Sharon for sharing this little gem of information) and the page on the right has a piece of tussar silk with embroidery on it. Take a stitch on Tuesday is certainly influencing the methods I'm employing to complete the July TIF, so much inspiration on Stitchin Fingers.
I think I've come to the half-way mark of the July challenge and I need to contemplate what needs to be done to complete it.Does the page with the quote need anything more or can I leave it as it is? and the page with the Cretan stitch had some detached chain sitches on it which I ripped out so what should it be?

I like what you have done with the quote! It's up to you whether you add more on that page or not, as if you ask ten people...you would probably get ten different answers. So...you've done a fine job so far...follow your bliss...as Joseph Campbell would say!! Pat at birdnestontheground

I love the quote and the way you used the cretan stitch to imply directionality. I love it as is, but you are the artist so go with your intuition.
