It is time for an update on my Heaven and Earth Designs Twilight Duel cross stitch, based upon artwork by Ruth Thompson.
This is how it looked on May 8th - just after completing the 22nd color on page 4 for the challenge on the New Official Heaven and Earth Designs Facebook Group. (Please pretend the text on this photo reads August 30, 2015 - not 2016.)
I finished the challenge on May 16th. For the Cross Country/Confetti Challenge we were required to stitch a full page completing one full color before beginning another. Unless I forgot to record a color, there were 49 colors on page 4.
I don't know about you, but I LOVE the way the sky looks around the black dragon's wing!
This is also my 9 month photo, as I did not add more stitches before the 30th.
I've only added a few hundred stitches since then, so it's a bit hard to see the difference. However, 2,439 stitches have been added since the last update.
For those that like the statistics:
Project: 14.26% (It was 12.61%)
Page 2: 58.84% (It was 58.15%)
Page 3: 11.4% (It was 8.53%)
Page 5: 1.83% (It was 1.62%)
Page 7: 2.7% (Same)
Page 10: 0.25% (It was 0.22%)
I am linking up with Stitchery Link Party #62 at Super Mom - No Cape! I encourage you to visit to see the free embroidery pattern and to discover what other bloggers have been working on this week.
Of the finishes shared last week I fell completely in love with the nativity shared by NeedledMom. I hope to find time someday to stitch myself. I believe the chart is "Oh Holy Night Nativity" by Stoney Creek. If you missed the post, I encourage you to check it out.
If you do any hand embroidery and have a blog, I encourage you to link up and join the fun!
Thank you for stopping by! -Renee
