Last month I shared this progress picture of Twilight Duel - the Heaven and Earth Designs cross stitch based on artwork by the amazing Ruth Thompson.
I added over 5,000 stitches this month! (I guess there is nothing like a challenge deadline to motivate me...)
As I began the project August 30, 2015, I like to take a photo of my progress on the 30th of each month.
This is how it looked on September 30, 2016.
For those of you that use Q-snap frames, is there a good way to avoid the line the clamps are leaving on my fabric? Any advice is welcome. With the time put into this piece I really do not want to damage it.
On October 9th, I finished page 8!
You may remember, I was working on a Parking Challenge for the New Official Heaven and Earth Designs Facebook Group. I met the October 15th deadline.
Part of the white dragon's mouth appeared, as did a tiny bit of a knee!
32,342 stitches are done, so there are 115,258 stitches to go...
After submitting my photos for the challenge, I worked in the threads I had parked on pages 7 and 9. I still have a few to finish on page 14. Then I plan to finish page 3.
Project: 21.91% (It was 18.34%)
Page 3: 14.14% (Same)
Page 5: 1.83% (Same)
Page 7: 7.08% (It was 2.95%)
Page 9: 2.73% (It was 0.22%)
Page 10: 0.25% (Same)
Page 14: 1.83% (It was 0%)
Page 8 Milestones (4th page completed):
- Finished the 1st skein of white.
- Finished the 2nd skein of white. (I am now using the 3rd of the 5 white skeins I purchased for this project.)
- Surpassed 30,000 stitches!
- It is now more than 20% complete!
