QS Red Hearts Update - December 2017

My Heaven and Earth Designs "QS Red Hearts" cross-stitch, based on artwork by Ching-Chou Kuik, will be my International Hermit and Stitch Weekend (IHSW) project until it is finished.

This was last month's photo.

My goal is to add at least 600 stitches a month. I suppose the positive side to waking up way too early all weekend was the extra stitching time. 

I added 952 stitches and finished another diagonal section - reaching the bottom of the piece.

31,553 of 46,990 stitches are complete.

The project is 67.15% complete. (It was 65.12%)

Pages 1-4: 100% complete
Page 5:        45.43% complete. (It was 42.62%)
Page 6:          7.44% complete.
Page 7:        47.09% complete. (It was 31.78%)
Page 8:          0.09% complete.
Page 9:          0% complete.

In 2017, I added 13,385 stitches to this piece! Only 15,437 to go...

Thank you for visiting!

I love the idea of a hermit and stitch weekend - sounds heavenly, but not easy to accomplish (at least here anyway). You've done a tidy numnber of stitches once again.
