Twilight Duel: SAL Update 21


I finally finished the third row of pages on Twilight Duel! Now I am filling in Page 10. The black dragon's face is on this page and continues into Page 11 above. I cannot wait for it to appear!


More than 87,000 of the 147,600 stitches are complete now. On my next update there will be less than 60,000 stitches to go. Each little milestone is a huge motivator to reach the finish line with this piece for my son.

I do hope you will visit the other bloggers participating in our stitch-along (SAL). We each select a project to work on and share our updates every third Sunday. Our next update will be on May 23rd.


I apologize for posting later than normal. I loaned my son my laptop on Saturday and my phone would not allow me to add photos to the post.

Wishing you all a great week. Thank you for stopping by!

Twilight Duel: SAL Update 20

 


Over the past 3 weeks, a fair amount of progress was made on my Heaven and Earth Designs Twilight Duel cross stitch project.  I almost finished the third row of pages.


Page 21 will be completed by our next update on May 2nd. Then I will move up to fill in Page 10. (This piece is charted sideways.)

I do hope you will visit the other wonderful bloggers participating in this Stitch Along (SAL.) We each select our own project and share our progress every 3rd Sunday. We are in different time zones, so if a post is not up yet, please check back later. 


Thank you for visiting!

TAST 2021: Chain, Fly and Detached Chain Stitch

 



TAST is Take a Stitch Tuesday. It is a challenge offered by Sharon Boggon at Pintangle.com to learn a new stitch each week. There is no pressure and you can go at your own pace.



Week 1: Chain Stitch
I used Sharon Boggon's Stitching Templates to create this crazy quilt motif and used the chain stitch to create flower stems.

Flowers were created with sets of 5 detached chain stitches.

Week 2: Fly Stitch
Leaves were created with fly stitches.
Pink rhinestone beads were added to complete these flowers.

I also used the fly stitch to embellish a crazy quilt seam. Each fly stitch created a flower stem with leaves and pink glass seed beads created tiny flower buds.

Thank you for stopping by. I am wishing you all a fantastic week!

Twilight Duel: SAL Update 19



Another 3 weeks have flown by. Life has been insanely busy. In fact, I have had so many demands on my time recently that my amazing husband insisted I take a day this weekend to just relax. As a result, page 15 of Twilight Duel is now complete!

There is just a partial page to complete this row of pages.



The photo above shows how it looked in our last update. 

I do hope you will hop over to see what everyone else has been working on. We each select our own project to work on and share an update every 3rd Sunday. As we are in different time zones, if a post is not up, please check back later.

Our next update will be on April 11th.

Thank you all for the comments in my last update. Six days was a long time to go without power. We have amazing neighbors that shared their generator until the one we ordered arrived. And we were very lucky. There were residents nearby that went 12 to 13 days without power or water. We have definitely worked on improving our emergency kits.

Thank you for stopping by!

Twilight Duel: SAL Update 18



440 stitches have been added to Twilight Duel over the past 3 weeks. I hoped to stitch more; but considering we spent 6 days without power from freezing rain, I am happy with the progress I managed.



I do hope you will stop by to see what everyone else in this stitch-a-long (SAL) has been working on. We are in different time zones, so if a post is not up, please check back later. Our next update will be on March 21st.

Thanks for stopping by!
