Fractal White Tiger March 2018
Page 7 of my Charting Creations "Fractal White Tiger" cross-stitch, based on artwork by Ricky Barnard, was finished this month!
I am in love with this piece. Watching the tiger emerge is so much fun and it is going to be so impressive when it is finished.
I am still a bit concerned that the fabric may have stretched while I was using the Q-snaps, before I received my lap frame. I discussed my concerns about that and of the fabric not being quite straight with my eldest son this weekend, as I am making it for him. He said he does not want me to restart it though. He'll love it even if the framer is unable to get it fully straight when it is finished. This has made me shy of using a frame smaller than the piece I am stitching. And, I have found the fabric I have purchased through my (not-so) local needlework shop seems to hold it's shape better than the precut, packaged fabrics I have purchased at the craft store. (QS Red Hearts seems to have an angle to the fabric too.) Anyway... enough about my worries...
Here is a close up of how it looks now. Next I will be working on pages 11 and 12, which should reveal the top of the pink nose!
Thank you for visiting!
I began this project on January 1, 2016 to participate at stitchystart.blogspot.com.
Charting Creations also has a Small Fractal White Tiger chart based on this piece of art. It is my understanding the pinks in the nose are toned down in the smaller chart.
