Twilight Duel Update #17 February 2017

In January, I shared this progess photo of the Heaven and Earth Designs Twilight Duel cross-stitch I am working on for my youngest son. I just love Ruth Thompson's dragons.

There is another challenge on the New Official Heaven and Earth Designs Facebook Group to complete a blank page. So, I have skipped over to page 13.


Because I began this project on August 30, 2015, I try to take a photo on the 30th of each month.

This was my progress on January 30th. (I am itching to fill in pages 3 and 7!)


My mother-in-law spoiled me with a scroll lap frame for Christmas. My husband said she was quite nervous about it, because I had not even told my husband I wanted one. My delight delighted her. 

This is my progress on page 13. There was a bit of progress made on pages 7 and 14, too. 1,801 stitches have been added since my update on January 9th.

Percent Complete
Project: 23.79%  (It was 22.34%)
Pages 1 & 2: 100%
Page 3: 18.94% 
Page 4: 100%
Page 5: 1.83%
Page 6: 0%
Page 7: 11.08%   (It was 7.26%)
Page 8: 100%
Page 9: 2.73%
Page 10: 0.25%
Page 11: 0%
Page 12: 0%
Page 13: 26.08%  (It was 2.41%)
Page 14: 3.44%    (It was 2.9%)
I am joining Monday Stitchery Link Party #97 at Super Mom - No Cape! This week's free embroidery pattern is a cute little donkey with a basket of flowers. I do hope you will hop over to see what others have shared.

Thank you for stopping by!

Well done Renee! You are making fantastic progress with this project... it is such a dramatic scene and is going to look fabulous when it is finished. How lovely to have the lap frame to work on too.... what a wonderful and thoughtful gift! Christine x

Excellent update! You're doing well with all the colours. Btw, your title might need editing? It says the 17th. ;)

Those Heaven and Earth Designs and always beautiful, but they take forever! Keep on stitching!

It's a beautiful project and sits nicely in the new frame.
Keep up the good work.

Such detail, Renee!
I love HAED for that, but find them too intimidating to attempt at this stage - maybe in a few years when my life might be quieter...
The colours are so good... great progress!

Your mother-in-law is obviously in tune with you and what you might like...what a perfect gift!

Justine said...

Can I have your mother-in-law?! She sounds wonderful. Your project looks awesome but I would have to fill in those gaps!

Brigitte said...

Great job, Renee.
What a great gift from your MIL.
