HAED QS Red Hearts Update - July 2016

Can you believe it is the first Monday in July?! The year is half over.

I want to wish those of you in the USA a wonderful and safe 4th of July. And, I hope my Canadian friends enjoyed their Canada Day.

The first photo shows how my progress looked in June on my Heaven and Earth Designs QS Red Hearts chart based on artwork by Ching-Chou Kuik.

In the past month, I added over 1,500 stitches. And, I have a page finish! 

(Confession: I may have stayed up a little too late last night to finish page 2 because it was soooo close.)

This is 64 days of actual stitching time.

The full project is now 37.15% complete. Page 3 is a partial, and as you can see, a fair amount of it has already been stitched.

Page 1 - 100% complete!
Page 2 - 100% complete!
Page 3 - 31.96% complete
Page 4 - 13.64% complete
Page 5 - 2.17% complete

(Please excuse the small spot at the bottom of the photo - I used a damp cloth to wipe away a small smudge on the fabric.)
I am linking up with the Monday Stitchery Link Party #65 at Super Mom - No Cape! I love the Independence Day embroidery pattern being shared today. I do hope you'll stop and see some of the other fun projects that have been linked up!

You've made some great progress. She looks so pretty.

Her face is almost done - yay! I always get excited when I complete the face because it seems to give the piece life even though the rest of it isn't done.

These embroidery designs are lika a photograph. It must be fun to see the picture develop. Don't stay up too late - get your beauty sleep and stay healthy!

I've been trying to leave a comment here, but...hopefully it will work this time.
So pretty with beautiful stitches. I love this one!

She is really starting to emerge now! Staying up late is allowed when one gets close to finishing a section. :)

Thanks so much for linking up to last week's Stitchery Link Party and for the link back. Aloha hugs!
