Twilight Duel - SAL Update 4
Wow! 3 weeks went by quickly! I am afraid I still have no progress to share on the Heaven and Earth Designs Twilight Duel chart I am stitching for my youngest son.
To be honest, I am down to 3 needles and I forgot just how fast I go through them on this piece. 2 strands of floss over 25-count fabric makes it pretty tight to get through sometimes and the eyes of the needles tend to snap. I am happy to say the needles I wanted to order are finally in stock again, so I plan to resume this piece soon.
Over the past 3 weeks, I did manage to put 839 stitches into the Charting Creations Fractal White Tiger chart I am stitching for my oldest son. Although I am working this one with 2 strands over 28-count fabric, I am using the continental tent-stitch and it is soooo much easier to get a needle through. But I do love the coverage the full cross-stitch gives to Twilight Duel.
On our May 31st update, I will definitely have progress to share on Twilight Duel.
Confession... My boys remembered how much I enjoyed playing Animal Crossing with them on their GameCube when they were younger. So, my eldest bought the game for his Nintendo Switch and said it was just for me. So, for the past 2 weeks, I confess my little bit of "me time" after work has been playing or watching my boys play instead of stitching.
It is Mother's Day here today. I do hope all of you moms have an amazing day! (Even if it is Covid-19 style...)
Happy Stitching and Healthy Wishes!
Please do stop by to see the progress everyone else has made. I am happy to announce Helen has rejoined us. Welcome back, Helen! I look forward to seeing more of your Garden Alphabet.
