Fractal White Tiger August 2017

I am thrilled to share a page finish on my Charting Creations "Fractal White Tiger" cross-stitch that is based on artwork by Ricky Barnard. 

Page 6 is done!

3 of 30 pages and 21,712 of 174,300 stitches are complete. I will be filling in page 7 next.

1,818 stitches were added in August.

This is how it looked at the end of July. (The colors are more true in this photo.)

I seriously LOVE working on this piece. Once I finish one of my other large cross-stitch projects, Fractal White Tiger will be receiving a lot more attention.

(There is a complete photo of this project on the right sidebar.)

Note: There is now a Small Fractal White Tiger chart available at Charting Creations. I am working the regular chart. What is the difference? 
Regular chart: 350W x 498H (174,300 stitches) - 80 colors.
Small chart: 205W x 291H (59,655 stitches) - 64 colors. I believe the colors on the nose are toned down on the small chart, as well. 

Although I began this piece on January 1, 2016 to participate with, this is 71 days worth of actual stitching progress.

I am joining Monday Stitchery Link Party #125 at Super Mom - No Cape! I do hope you will pop over to see what others are working on.

If you have a blog and do any hand embroidery, I hope you will join the party!

I love that beautiful eye of the white tiger. You have a lot more to go. Isn't it great when you really enjoy the stitching. I am looking forward to watching your progress on this as well as Red Hearts and Twilight Duels.

So stunning. He's really starting to come to life!

This looks great! Nice progress.

A great project, Renee. I love how his first eye is looking now.

All that black eyeliner is making his eye stand out!

Renee said...

Thank you, Catherine! Yes, I am quite eager to work down the chart to see part of his nose appear. :) I love the colors in this piece.

It's easy to see the progress this time Renee. I imagine you can't wait to start his (her?) other eye.

Congratulations on a page finish! It's looking so good - I like to look at the picture on the sidebar and compare it to your progress.

I'll bet it felt good to finish another page! I can see how when working on a long term project like this, each page would feel like a mini milestone along the way.

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

Wow it looks just beautiful! Congrats on the page finish.
