POSTED BY NICOLA BERRY
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.

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.

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!!!

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!

I hope you all like him as much as I do!
