Call of the Raven

I have another finished page!
To give you an idea about the amount of stitches:
Chart is 450 x 600 = 270.000
Done: 450 x 470 = 211.500 stitches
That is 87,3 %

If I want to have it done within two years it means I have to add 2437 stitches each month. Until now I add about 1000 stitches a month. Going on like this means it won't be a finish until the year 2017 (!)

In the winter there is always more time that I can embroider. With nice weather we are more outside and exercise more. Now it is delicious with chocolate milk and a homemade cookie to be home.
Gothic, from Marta Dahlig goes smoothly. Already two pages done.
There was also great news, we will be back grandparents next year. Lucas gets a little brother or sister. The first echoes are created and the baby is growing well.

Daisy Offerings Update Progress 11-22-2013

100_8972 - Daisy Offerings - Designer - HAED - Sandra Kuck - Progress 11-22-2013
Daisy Offerings
Designer - HAED - Sandra Kuck
Material - 18 Count White Charles Craft
DMC Threads 2 x 1 Full Cross Stitch
Progress 11-22-2013
I finished another column today on Page 3.  I decided to take my Q Snaps off and show you what I have accomplished since I have started stitching this.  I have to do One Column at a time, One Page at a time due to the fact that the very outer edge of this goes all the way around so I have to be real careful with my columns and make sure that I get my columns in the right rows so it will be oval shape by the time I get this completely finished.  I do One Column, One Page at a time.  I stitch a 10 x 10 block each day.  The very top of this is all Confetti Stitching so sometimes it takes me 2 days to do a 10 x 10 block due to the Confetti Stitching. 
I am almost done with Page 3.  I have one more full column to do and than a partial column to do.  Than I will start on Page 4. 
There are 36 Pages total to this pattern.  It is a picture of a girl up in the sky throwing Daisy's down on Earth.  It is a really neat picture.  I am stitching the background right now. 
Thanks for looking...enjoy....
Happy Stitching

The Witching Hour Update

Well I decided to put away Lavender Moon and SK Masquerade.  I just can't get the hang of stitching on linen.  Sometime I will start them up again on 18 ct Aida.  So I am stitching on The Witching Hour finishing the top two rows on the first page.  Not much to see since it is mostly black.  I have stitched 1993 stitches so far I have the first two rows done and now working on the third.  I started in the left upper corner of the pattern. There is still not a lot to see since it is almost all black. I am stitching this one with Ivory 18 ct Aida. I really am enjoying myself stitching this one. :)
