Fractal White Tiger August 2020 Update

 It was nice to work on this Charting Creations Fractal White Tiger project again this month. 1,439 stitches were added, bringing the total to 41,662 of 147,300.

The photo below shows how it looked at the end of May, in my last update.  

I am working on pages 16 & 17. They will reveal whiskers and more of the tiger's nose. 

Wishing you all a fantastic September with lots of time for stitching!

Dark Forces - August

 Another month, another ten hours, and another % or so of progress on Dark Forces! Here they are at the end of July:

And after I filled in some blues and a lot of white on the helmet - added a total of 1,482 stitches which brought me from 22.7 to 23.8%!

Another month should bring me pretty close to a page finish, but I suspect it will be October before the page is actually done - those last couple stitches always take forever!

Magical Arrival, July 2020

August 2
I can't believe I skipped May and June. At least I didn't skip the stitching part lol. My goal for this year is to finish the row and the fill in on the row above.  Looks like I'm on track for that.

Dark Forces June

This month I had Dark Forces out pretty early for their ten hours of glory :) I was working on filling in the last stitches of page 6, which was somewhat confetti-y at times and thus slow going. I did, however, manage the planned page finish, plus a tiny start on page 7, for a total of 1.192 stitches.

Can't wait to get some more stitched in in July - page 7 is pretty block-y, so should stitch up reasonably fast!

Total progress so far:  29.717 stitches/21.58%

Mini's Indian peacock May 2020 update

Hi Stitchers,

Another month has gone by , can't believe half of 2020 will soon be over. Well, I'm sure we cant wait this year to pass...
So for May, I did a personal goal of stitching every day which I shared end of last month. I'm happy to report that I was stick to my goal for almost all days except 2 when I was too tired to stitch.
I added 3711 stitches, a combination of full and half cross stitches.Here is how the WIP looks like:

This is giving me hope that I can finish this project this year. I'm going to start a new project today so that I cant get bored of this one.

Hope you are staying safe and indoors wherever you are.
Happy Stitching

Fractal White Tiger May 2020 Update

1,070 stitches were added to my Charting Creations Fractal White Tiger in May. 

This completed page 12, so 6 of 30 pages are done.

It sits sideways on my frame, so I am working a 2 page row from the top to the bottom of the chart. Pages 16 & 17 will be worked on next. They will reveal some whiskers and more of the tiger's nose.

This is how it looked in my last update.

The piece is now 23.08% complete.

Happy Stitching!
