Renee's Fractal White Tiger October Update

I spent less than four hours on my Charting Creations Fractal White Tiger cross-stitch this month. The chart is based on artwork by Ricky Barnard.

Thanks to some large blocks of color, I still managed to add 456 stitches.

This is how it looked last month.

The color in the top photo is more accurate.

I love working on this piece.

Love with a Capital L September progress

Hi, everyone!  At last my piece is coming together and I'm starting to feel excited about it.  I finally reached the bottom border and made good progress on the personalization section.  I also did some research looking for a mini cupid motif and I found a Brooke's Books' freebie, that may work, with a little tweaking. 

Previous progress:
I did try Valdani "Terra Cotta" for the big capital L and wound up frogging it.  I suppose I am terribly picky, but I felt it looked "muddy".  So, I finally decided I will stitch that section with the crimson (main color), and I will try to complete the top left corner this month, plus a bit more if time allows.
