A little bit of progress was made on my Charting Creations Fractal White Tiger cross-stitch this month. No stitches were added in July. Only 56 were added in August. And 255 stitches were added in September.
This is how it looked in the last update. I hope to make more progress in October. Happy Stitching, Renee
Here's a double update, since I forgot to post last month. It's been a busy summer, hot and sticky, not my fave, anyway.... Previous progress:
I gave it two stitchathons weekends, for a total of just over 3,000 stitches. Now:
So, we have Rabbit and a bit more of Pooh's red t shirt. Rabbit turned out cute enough with tons of fractional stitches and several close shades of yellow and brown. He will come alive with backstitch, eventually (as will Eyeore). The empty space on the far left will be Tigger pushing Piglet in a wheelbarrow or something. The rest of the empty stitches will be done with blending filament. I'll probably work on those areas at the end of September, and then I'll have a page finish (page 3/4). I'm slowing down on this piece, I think, just for the rest of the year. There's another 2 full coverage piece in my rotation that I'd like to finish this year, and I'm happy to carry Pooh over to next year, when I may pick up the pace a little.
So I gave Winnie the Pooh a Stitchathon weekend in June and I was really into it, I counted 2,076 stitches! (Stitchathon is an event with the Cross Stitch Finish Line group on FB) Previous:
It was really fun to stitch Eyeore, so that part went quickly. The next few columns will reveal Rabbit, and now it's another Stitchathon weekend now with Pooh on the scroll frame. I'm shooting for 1200 stitches but 1500 wouldn't be bad!
This is actually more of a May update than June. I did not add any stitches to my Charting Creations Fractal White Tiger project in April.
I did manage to add 1,603 stitches to this piece between May 2nd and May 8th. Would you believe I have not touched a needle since then? (I am going through serious withdrawals.) So, no stitches were added in June either. I am eager to see how much progress I can make in July. Happy Stitching, Renee
