Progress :)

Hi guys I'm back!  I'm about 75% done with Paradise with 12 pages left.  6 of those are full pages. I'm doing these 3 pages a tad different and I'm doing all 3 together.  

But here's the pics :)

Last time:

This time:

So as you can see I finished 2 1/2 pages this month and am well on my way in the next section!

I'm really hoping I can get these 3 pages done this month.  Wish me luck thanks for stopping by!

Renee's Fractal White Tiger June Update

This month 1,185 stitches were added to my Charting Creations Fractal White Tiger cross-stitch, based on artwork by Ricky Barnard.

This is how it looked last month.

9,227 of 174,300 stitches have been completed and the project is 5.29% complete.

I really do love working on this one!

Love with a Capital L April-May progress

Hi everyone.  It's been awhile!  The frog visited in April. The thread I bought for the big capital L, Silk n' Colors "Turkey Feathers" did not work out. 


You can see the faint remains of the frogged stitches.  I was so upset after frogging, I had to set it aside.  But I did take it out a week later and stitched a new page.  Then, in May, I worked on it again.  I also spent some time charting a new section for the bottom, with my wedding details.
Honestly I'm at my wit's end with that capital L.  I want a variegated thread with the colors in the piece (dark red, orange, gold).  If you have any suggestions, please let me know.  Or I could just stitch it it with the crimson.

Holiday Blew By!

Wow how is it June?!  I meant to post yesterday but between work, Disneyland, a movie and a long drive home it didn't happen :D. 

Not much progress on paradise (yet again) but this time it was because I stitched a page of another design for the HAED challenge so I did actually finish almost two pages.  But last time I was here:

Now I'm here:

Actually a tad farther but didn't get a pic. The end of the page is where the blue starts so I have about 3/4 done.  See you next time with hopefully more progress!

May 2016 - Christmas Contest Suteki

I apparently haven't stitched on Suteki since the end of March, and then not a lot. March was vacation month, April was The April A to Z Blogging Challenge, and I really have no excuse for May other than it's taken me a while to get my stitching mojo back. I left off here: suteki014
And worked on her approximately two hours on the 31st so that I'd have some progress to show: suteki015
I'm trying to get my routine back on track, but it hasn't been easy after so long a break, so I can't guarantee June will be much better, but I'm gonna try!
