QS Red Hearts Update - February 2018
My goal this year is to add at least 1,290 stitches to my Heaven and Earth Designs "QS Red Hearts" cross-stitch project, based on the artwork of Ching-Chou Kuik. As of January 1st, this would have finished the project by the end of December. With my current stitch count, this goal will complete the piece in November.
This is how she looked at the beginning of the month.
I added 582 stitches to her before International Hermit & Stitch Weekend (IHSW), so she looked like this on Friday morning.
And another 1,473 stitches were added during IHSW. A total of 2,055 stitches were added to her this month. (And putting her away until March is going to be hard! She's getting so close to a finish.)
The parked threads were driving me a little crazy, so I worked them in. So, it may not be as easy to see, but I did finish another diagonal row of the chart.
I passed the 75% complete milestone on Saturday. (I'm sorry you missed seeing my happy dance!)
The project is now 76.11% complete. (It was 71.74%.)
Pages 1-4: 100% complete
Page 5: 74.64% complete (It was 65.15%)
Page 6: 32.86% complete (It was 17.71%)
Page 7: 73.65% complete (It was 56.13%)
Page 8: 2.30% complete (It was 0.11%)
Page 9: 0.00% complete
Thank you for visiting!
IHSW stands for International Hermit & Stitch Weekend. This event takes place the 3rd weekend of every month and began at Random Ramblings. You may learn more about IHSW here, find the Facebook group here. Save the dates and join us the weekend of March 16th-18th. It is simple, take a before picture of your stitching project(s), stitch as much as you can over the weekend, and take an after photo to show off your progress.
