HAED SK Effects of Caffeine Day 4 Update

This morning, I took one of my boys to a routine appointment and took my travel project along to work on while I waited. This is the Heaven and Earth Designs (HAED) "SK Effects of Caffeine" cross-stitch chart based on artwork by Randal Spangler.

In 45 minutes, I managed to add 89 little red stitches to the upper-right corner.

The photo to the left was shared in my last update. The chart is now 3.25% complete. (Not bad for only 4 days work!)

I look forward to my next opportunity to add a few stitches to this one.

*Please note a correction. In my last update, I mentioned the Christmas Raffle at HAED would raise funds for Meals on Wheels. I believe that may have been an error and the funds may have been donated to the Make a Wish Foundation.  My oops.

Thank you for stopping by!
Renee

Fantastic progress!

No matter - they're both good causes!
Well done on the Spangler stitch. How do you know you've done 89 stitches exactly? Do you count as you stitch?!

Wonderful progress in such a short time. I don't think my eyes would be able to stitch that small for very long lengths of time.

You stitch very quickly Renee! If I was stitching in a waiting room I'd get about 10 stitches done! Great progress! Christine x

Boy, nothing like a little caffeine to get the needle humming ­čśä

So much better to spend waiting time doing something other than leafing through vintage (!) magazines that invariably have a torn out recipe JUST where the article you're interested in ends.

It's amazing what a difference 89 stitches can make!

good progress, every stitch counts. I always take along needlework to the doc´s waiting room - there are never any mags to read anyway.
