Avarice pages 11 and 12 completed


I finished both pages seeing as page 12 was only 12 stitches wide, it seemed pointless updating then having to do another a day later lol

After losing my stitchy bug for a while it came back with a vengeance and I have averaged around 700 stitches a day inbetween doing some house decorating and DIY this past month.

So the second row is now complete. The third row is confetti heavy on the first and last page but plenty of block stitching in the middle as I start her skirt.

Stitched one over one on 25ct fabric. Apologies not a great pic, bad light and a camera phone make for dreadful conditions.

Completed QS Daughter of the Deep.

Finally completed her today - started on 27th August 2012. 

I love the colours and design :)

Update on Felicia by Hannah Disney

I'm done with page 3 on Felicia.  These colors are really fun to stitch--though I'm never quite sure how they will turn out.  This is stitched on 18 ct. Afghan fabric, 2 over 1.   I hope everyone is having a great Fall season!

last pages of Three Worlds

Finally an update. It is a battle with time. I have another 37 days, and then he must be ready. December 1, he must at the framer. Ivan's birthday is 31 December, but the framer is always the last two weeks of December closed.
Crosses another 20,000, which is an average count of 540 stitches per day. This should normally be fine. But you do have some of those days.
If it works, I go a little further with the Christmas stocking. I make it no hurry though.
Our grandson is great. He grows nice and gives his parents awake nights. If you're only four weeks old, you should though.

Treasure Quest. Karmen

I'm ready to start page 13 of 36...

Faery 2

Just finished page 3 of Faery 2 by Nadia Strelkina.  It is stitched on 20 count evenweave, 2 over 1.  I enjoyed stitching the castle but with this design I get good variety-- so looking forward to working on the peacock.  Hoping for another page finish soon!

Catch up!

Soooooo sorry!  I haven't been on here in absolutely ages!  Not helped by a total stitchy-nothingness for about 4 months this year :( Anyway here are my most recent wips!

First of all, a new start (oopsie!) Starlight by Linda Ravenscroft.  Stitched one over one, full crosses on 28ct jobelan.  Lovely, but so many shades of blue and gray!!

Second, any my main project at the moment, A Princess is Born - Hannah Lynn.  Again, one over one, full crosses 28ct jobelan.  This is after page 3 was completed, I am now almost halfway through page 4.  Just page 5 and a column 12 stitches wide on page 6 and that will be the top row done!!!

HAED's Mini Transcendence as of 10th October 2012 (Two Pages Done) by Gizzimomo

Hi Everyone,

Here's an update on my latest start which I haven't shown here yet!

It's Mini Transcendence by Adele Sessler and I'm stitching it 1 over 1 in full crosses on hand dyed 'Emerald Sky' 25 count lugana by Sparklies.

So far I have stitched two pages (to find the top of the design) and have started the third tiny partial page. I started in the middle so page 1 is actually page 5. Faeren's face is little indistinct but it's so tiny you can understand why, other than that the detail is really good on this one!

Total Progress After 2 Pages
I hope you all like him as much as I do!

Life Force by Mel

I think I've been cruising along at a pretty good pace on Life Force. I didn't quite finish page 2 this past month but there was a lot going on between birthday parties, football, friends and lots of work! I'm hoping to finish pages 2 & 3 in October.
