SK Effects of Caffeine - SAL Update 14

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen the above photo already. I really love Randal Spangler's artwork!

Over the past 3 weeks, 696 stitches were added to my Heaven and Earth Designs Storykeep Effects of Caffeine cross-stitch project.

Page 3 (of 4) is 41.17% complete.
The project is 63.77% done.

This is how it looked on September 22nd.

Our next update will be on November 3rd.

Participants of this Stitch Along (SAL) each choose one project and share updates of their progress every 3 weeks. 

I hope you will stop in to see what everyone else is working on! We are in different time zones, so if you do not see a post, please check back later. For more details or to join, check in with Avis through the first link below.

TAST 2019 - Stitches 5 & 17

It has been ages since my last Take a Stitch Tuesday (TAST) post. I actually completed these stitches in June... (Learn more about the TAST challenge offered by Sharon Boggon at through the link above.)

This seam was added to a crazy quilted Valentine fabric postcard I am creating. It was created with two TAST stitches.

Stitch 5: Feather Stitches were added with a strand of green DMC S909 satin floss.

Stitch 17: Bullion Knot Stitches were added with #48 DMC size 8 variegated perle cotton floss to add flowers to a vine of feather stitches.

For this stitch, the right needle is very important. I struggled with these horribly before reading Sharon's tip to use a milliners needle. 

My 2019 TAST Progress:
Completed Stitches: 1-5, 7, 11 & 17
Need to Stitch: 6, 8-10, 12-16, & 18-36
