So Frustrating!

Hey guys I'm here with almost another 3 pages finished.  I have one done but couldn't quite whip out the other two.  I would have had it done but last weekend we were out of town for a wedding and this weekend hubby wanted to go out and do stuff all weekend.  

But I'm super close and will finish both pages tomorrow.

Here's where I was last time:

Here's where I am now:

As you can see I just have a tad in the middle and at the very bottom.

I have 9 pages left and only 4 whole pages.  I'm still debating but I think I'll do another set of 3 pages like I did this time and then the rest of them all together.  Either that or I'll do them all in one big set.  Pretty sure 2 sections though.  Either way I'm getting there!  I'm really aiming for the end of September.

Renee's Fractal White Tiger July Update

This month, I added 1,145 stitches to my Charting Creations Fractal White Tiger cross stitch based on artwork by Ricky Barnard.

I surpassed my goal of 900 stitches per month again and finally passed the 10,000 stitches mark.

This photo shows my update last month.

(The colors in this photo are more true. My camera and lighting this evening did not want to play nice.)

10,372 of 174,300 stitches are done and the project is 5.95% complete. 

Next month will be busy, so I hope to have progress to share. 
I still love working on this one!

July Progress

Just a bit of progress.  I was able to stitch a pot with flowers and a start on the tree.  July was so busy and August is starting that way too.  I have barely kept up with my Randje per Week and finished my spool project.  Our county fair starts on Tuesday so will be entering it and a couple other items. Hope you all have had more time to stitch!
Keep stitching!

June Whizzed By!!!

Who where did the month of June go?  It disappeared very fast!

I have only stitch a bit on my piece.  I completed 5 more motifs.  I have been side tracked with a couple SAL.  Managing to keep up on the Randje per Week.  We have reached the half way point.  Still love all the different styles of alphabets and numbers.  I also joined another SAL.  It is a Quaker Patchwork.  It is a closed group so can't show it till I am done.  You have to send a picture of your piece to receive the next installment.  I am on page 4.

July looks to be a busy month too.  Hoping I can tear myself away from the SAL and get a few more motifs done while watching the KC Royals.

Keep Stitching!

Love Update- June progress

Hi everyone and I hope those of us in the States had a good 4th of July.  I finished another page last month (bottom left).  There are now another 3 pages to go, plus my personalization section, and the bottom border.

I've sketched out my personalization in the margins of my chart: our names, "united in marriage" and wedding date; I'm also planning to add a rose motif.  Though, I need some graph paper so I can figure out the proper spacing.  No rush on that since I need to finish pages 11-12 first.  Happy stitching everyone!

No progress again

Once again I didn't work on my HAED. The shame of posting this should be enough to get me back at the frame.
