On August 30th, 2015, I began working on the Heaven and Earth Designs Twilight Duel cross-stitch chart based upon artwork by Ruth Thompson.
This is a chart my son would like me to stitch for him. There is a photo on the right side-bar. I warned him that a project this large might take me about 5 years and he was fine with that time-line. The adventure has begun! (If he had an iPhone, I would be sorely tempted to get him a Twilight Duel phone case...)
There are 147,600 stitches in this chart. So, I need to complete a minimum of 568 stitches a week to finish on schedule. I am aiming for 700 stitches a week (or 100 stitches a day), in hopes of finishing early.
August 30th - September 13th, I completed 1,422 stitches.
Page 1 is now 18% complete. The entire chart is 0.96% complete. (I am trying not to think about the fact that this is less than 1% finished, so I do not intimidate myself too much. This is a HUGE project for me.)
My biggest concern with this chart was that I might get bored working on all of the blue background. Luckily, I discovered I enjoy seeing the shading of the sky come together.
I am linking up with Monday Stitchery Link Party #23 at Super Mom - No Cape! I do hope you will stop by to see what others have been up to this week. If you do any hand stitching, I hope you might link up, too!
My next progress update on this piece will be shared on October 12th, the 2nd Monday of next month. That is 28 days and hopefully 2,800 stitches away.
Thank you for stopping by!
