Renee's Fractal White Tiger May 2017 Update

I do love working on Charting Creation's Fractal White Tiger, based on artwork by Ricky Barnard.

This month's progress is difficult to see. I have been filling in some of the confetti stitches that I skipped on my quest to add the eye.

651 stitches were added this month and the top two rows of page 6 are now complete.

I hit the 18,000 stitches milestone today. 

This is how the piece looked last month.

There are some larger blocks of color coming up, so next month's progress should be more visible. 

Reptiles-I am Obsessed

I don't want to put this down although I have other, more pressing projects. And, it really doesn't look like much. I need to set it up somewhere so I can stitch on it at least once a week.
Here is where I was in March:
 And this is where I am today:
I am close to finishing the first page, but I have a bit more to do. Maybe by the end of June?

Winnie the Pooh II May Progress

Hello everyone! May was a crazy stitchy month.  With Stitch Maynia, I made 5 starts and worked on 10 WIPs over the first two weeks of May.  Still, Winnie the Pooh got some dedicated attention afterwards.  I've started using highlighters on the chart since more colors are being incorporated.  Previous progress:


I'm happy with my progress.  I finished columns 3 & 4 (down to the midline), including the blended thread & blending filament, and got a good start on column 5.  The empty squares are charted for 1 x 1, which I will do later.  I think the detail will be a swarm of bees.  I'm loving this project and wish I had room in my rotation to dedicate more time to it, but it will be a focus piece someday.
