So I gave Winnie the Pooh a Stitchathon weekend in June and I was really into it, I counted 2,076 stitches! (Stitchathon is an event with the Cross Stitch Finish Line group on FB) Previous:
It was really fun to stitch Eyeore, so that part went quickly. The next few columns will reveal Rabbit, and now it's another Stitchathon weekend now with Pooh on the scroll frame. I'm shooting for 1200 stitches but 1500 wouldn't be bad!
This is actually more of a May update than June. I did not add any stitches to my Charting Creations Fractal White Tiger project in April.
I did manage to add 1,603 stitches to this piece between May 2nd and May 8th. Would you believe I have not touched a needle since then? (I am going through serious withdrawals.) So, no stitches were added in June either. I am eager to see how much progress I can make in July. Happy Stitching, Renee
Hello friends, it's been a busy spring and I forgot to post April so today we'll do a double update. I've given it 2 weekends, or about 5 days since then. Previous progress:
I have stitched on 4 columns since then, or about 2000 stitches. The empty area will be Tigger pushing Piglet in a wheelbarrow, stitched over 1, in the background. That is the most complex of all the over 1 sections and the pattern directions say to stitch it last. The little bit of grey at the edge of the column, beneath Tigger, is Eyeore's tail. I'm pretty excited because the next few columns will reveal the rest of Eyeore.
Hello friends, March was a good stitchy month. Winnie the Pooh only got 2 days, but that was enough to get about 1500 stitches. Previous:
I finished page 2 (upper right) using blending filament and also filled in some ninja stitches. Backstitching did not seem appealing so I moved onto the next page (bottom left). The first two columns, including the bottom corner, are finished. It was fun to stitch those bright reds & pinks, but that entire area will be covered in a plethora of french knots. Good thing I don't mind french knots, but those will be done last as I don't like having them rolled up on the scroll.
I finally finished the birds!
My favorite season to stitch: winter.
My least favorite season to stitch: spring.
My favorite one to look at: fall.
Favorite little detail: the berries in the summer season.
I am now working on HAED, Magical Arrival by Anne Stokes. I finished page one and just barely got started on page two.
This month I met my goal and finished page 7 of my Charting Creations Fractal White Tiger cross-stitch, based on artwork by Ricky Barnard. (I know March 31st is tomorrow, but the progress will be the same.)
Here is a closer view. 1,965 tent stitches were added. Next month I will be working on pages 11 and 12. The bottom of page 12 will begin to reveal the nose, so I am really motivated to see more progress. 4 of 30 pages are finished. The project is over 15% complete. Happy Stitching, -Renee
