Renee's Fractal White Tiger March 2016 Update

Here is my 3 month update on the Charting Creations "Fractal White Tiger" chart, featuring artwork by Ricky Barnard, I have 5,158 of 174,300 stitches completed. (My goal was at least 900 stitches a month, so I am 2,458 stitches ahead.)

Here is how it looked last month. (The colors are more true to life in this photo.)

Although it does not look like a tiger yet, I just love the way the colors are coming to life on the fabric. I caught a view of it from across the room and have no doubt it is going to be incredibly impressive when it is done.

March - Letting Go update

I worked hard on my HAED chart this month.

I'm so glad to finally be working on her. I know I still need to fill in some of the sky to the left, but it will get done sometime lol.

March 2016 - Christmas Contest Suteki

Thanks to vacation, it's kind of hard to tell where my progress is, but at least there is some (well, two nights worth to be exact, but every little bit counts, right?). I left off here: suteki012
And finished here for the month and I'm now at a total of 86.9 hrs: suteki014
April will be even worse due to the April A to Z Blogging Challenge, but things should be back to normal in May (unless I decide to work on vacation pictures, then another month will bite the dust).

Love with a Capital L February progress

Hi, BAP stitchers!  "Love" was my focus project for February; why not, given the subject matter?  So I did work on it quite a lot.  I have 3 colors in play now- all Gloriana Silk- crimson (main), pumpkin (border and motifs), and copper (second color in the text).  I am happy with these choices but I still need something more variegated for the big capital L that will be at the top left.
Previous progress:

In March I will try to finish the berry vine band (work across to the right side) and work on the next page.    Honestly, I got pretty tired of this project in February, so I don't expect to make as much progress in March.  I do want to finish this year, however.

Yay Leap Day!

I needed this extra day to get as much stitching in as possible.  I definitely have slacked off a bit this month as I only got 2 pages done.  Part of the problem is I've been working out pretty consistently and another part is that I've had a couple of nights where I've been too busy to stitch and to top it off I'm moving this week and it took a lot of time to shop for a new apartment.

But here's what I have so far.  Last time:


My goal for next month is smaller because if moving but my goal is to finish  this set of pages which is basically 2-1/2.  April won't go well either because of my birthday but we'll climb that mountain when we come to it :).
