Twilight Duel: SAL Update #23

 


The advantage to waking up too early on weekend mornings has been finding quiet time to cross-stitch. 1,853 stitches were added to my Heaven and Earth Designs Twilight Duel cross-stitch project over the past 3 weeks, passing the 60% complete milestone.

The photo above shows how it looked in our last update.

For this Stitch Along (SAL) we each select our own project to work on and we share updates every 3rd Sunday. Our next update will be on July 4th. 

I hope you can stop by to see the projects other crafty bloggers have been working on.


Thank you for stopping by!

Twilight Duel: SAL Update 22

 


Only 432 stitches were added to my Heaven and Earth Designs Twilight Duel cross-stitch project over the past 3 weeks. 



The photo above is from our last SAL update.

It is not as much progress as I had hoped for, but that is okay. I am still on track to complete this row of pages by the end of the year.

I do hope you will visit the other crafty bloggers participating in our 3 week stitch along.

Thank you for visiting!

Twilight Duel: SAL Update 21


I finally finished the third row of pages on Twilight Duel! Now I am filling in Page 10. The black dragon's face is on this page and continues into Page 11 above. I cannot wait for it to appear!


More than 87,000 of the 147,600 stitches are complete now. On my next update there will be less than 60,000 stitches to go. Each little milestone is a huge motivator to reach the finish line with this piece for my son.

I do hope you will visit the other bloggers participating in our stitch-along (SAL). We each select a project to work on and share our updates every third Sunday. Our next update will be on May 23rd.


I apologize for posting later than normal. I loaned my son my laptop on Saturday and my phone would not allow me to add photos to the post.

Wishing you all a great week. Thank you for stopping by!

TAST 2021: Chain, Fly and Detached Chain Stitch

 



TAST is Take a Stitch Tuesday. It is a challenge offered by Sharon Boggon at Pintangle.com to learn a new stitch each week. There is no pressure and you can go at your own pace.



Week 1: Chain Stitch
I used Sharon Boggon's Stitching Templates to create this crazy quilt motif and used the chain stitch to create flower stems.

Flowers were created with sets of 5 detached chain stitches.

Week 2: Fly Stitch
Leaves were created with fly stitches.
Pink rhinestone beads were added to complete these flowers.

I also used the fly stitch to embellish a crazy quilt seam. Each fly stitch created a flower stem with leaves and pink glass seed beads created tiny flower buds.

Thank you for stopping by. I am wishing you all a fantastic week!
