Renee's Fractal White Tiger November Update

This November, I added 563 stitches to my Charting Creations Fractal White Tiger cross-stitch. 

This page feels SO close to being done. I would love to finish it by my next update.

The lighting is making it difficult to get a good picture - the colors are more true in last month's photo below.

This was last month's progress. The white I added along the bottom of page 2 is difficult to see in the photos. 

More stripes will be visible in my next update - making the progress easier to spot.

I wish you some relaxing stitching time this next month.

Look what I found

I know I haven't stitched much on this all year, but it recently found it's way back to the front. I've added just little bit to my HAED, Letting Go by Zindy Nielson.

I hope to get back in the full swing of things in 2017.

Love with a Capital L Happy Dance!

Friends, I am so pleased to announce Love is finished, and before my anniversary too!  It's stitched 1 over 1 on 25 ct antique smoky white lugana with 3 colors of Gloriana silk floss- crimson, pumpkin, and copper.
 Stitching the bottom section involved a lot of frogging!  I kept messing up on the spacing.  I even spot cleaned it, because I thought it looked dirty after all the handling / frogging.  All the motifs in the bottom were charted by me, though I took inspiration from stuff I found online.  The rose border and hearts with calla lilies: roses and callas were the main flowers at the my wedding.  The candles because we had a candelit ceremony.  The colors were my wedding colors.  Cupids- why not? 

It was great to stitch along all year with you.... I hope this continues in 2017 as I'm planning to start a new full coverage next year- Winnie the Pooh II.
