QS Red Hearts Update - October 2018
In October, I really hoped to finish page 6 of my Heaven and Earth Design's "QS Red Hearts" cross-stitch project, based on artwork by the talented Ching-Chou Kuik. Mission accomplished!
This is how she looked at the end of September.
1,324 stitches were added in October.
7 of 9 pages are now complete!
This is how she looked on October 31st.
The project is 91.89% complete. (It was 89.07% in September.)
Pages 1-5: 100%
Page 6: 100% (It was 70.34%)
Page 7: 100%
Page 8: 48.99% (It was 41.24%)
Page 9: 17.04% (It was 7.03%)
November 16 - 18 will be International Hermit & Stitch Weekend (IHSW). I hope to make significant progress on this piece then! (In October, 930 stitches were added during IHSW.)
To meet my goal of finishing this project in 2018, I need to stitch 1,910 stitches in November and December. We'll see! It's a bit trickier now that I am working full time.
IHSW is an event that takes place the 3rd full weekend of the month. It is an opportunity to set aside as much time as possible to stitch. You may learn more about IHSW here. There is an IHSW Facebook Group that you may find here.
