May 31st--- ALREADY?

My, my the days are whizzing by!  I have done some work on my piece.  9 1/2 motifs finished.  I know the corner deer isn't stitched yet--thinking I might put something smaller in that space and add my name and date there.  Just thinking about it.  I have been doing most of the stitching on this piece while we watch (I listen) to the KC Royals baseball games.  We started watching early last season and was so impressed with the team.  They show such great emotions--remind me of 11 year old boys when they are winning!  LOL.  A lot of joy in the way they play.  And haven't seen ANY diva antics from any of them.

I am keeping up with the Randje per Week.  I really do find a lot of pleasure in stitching the letters and numbers.  I think it will be a great piece to have for reference when I want to find an alphabet to use! Another 4 weeks and we will be 1/2 way done.

I hope you had a great Memorial Day!  We attended the small ceremonies at a couple of our local cemeteries.  Our oldest son and 2 of his daughters,my sister and one of her sons and his family.

Keep stitching!

Renee's Fractal White Tiger May Update

Over 2,000 stitches were added to my Charting Creations Fractal White Tiger cross-stitch (based on artwork by Ricky Barnard) this month.

This included a page finish - page 1 is done!

 This was how it looked last month. (The colors in the first photo are more accurate.)

I am eager to finish page 2 and then move down to page 6 so I can see the blue eye appear.

8,042 of 174,3000 stitches have been added and the project is 4.61% complete.

If I meet my goal of adding 900 stitches a month, I will have over 5% of the stitching done with my June update.

Happy stitching, everyone!

Check in....

HI everyone how's it all going. I have been reading your posts on my email. I still have no want what so ever to stitch but I have been crocheting.
My fil has been really sick as of late and I need a vacation from work too. Going to take a week at the end of June and just have some fun with my son.
Just thought I would stop in and check up on you guys. So the stitchers that have not posted in a while let's hear from you and what you are up to.

Paradise :)

Hey everyone I still haven't made much progress.  My birthday was this month so I took a week vacation for it and I'm currently stitching for the HAED challenge on Facebook.  It's only a page though so it should be done soon and I can get back to paradise.  I'm 67% done and have 15 pages to go.

Last time:


I thought I had more progress but oh well at least I reached the bottom of the column.  I'm itching to get back to it so that's a good sign.

See you all next time with hopefully another column finish!
