Page 3 Finished! (Finally)!

Wow, this page has taken me forever! But its finally finished -yay! I know its only a page finish and not the whole thing, but its going to take me such a long time that I really need to celebrate the little things.

At this rate I will probably be 50 before it is finished, but I will keep going, even if its just a dozen stitches at a time.

It looks as though I have at least another day without work, so I am going to strike whilst the iron is hot and get straight onto page 4, I might even have another page finish before the end of the summer???

Thank you for sticking with me, I hope you enjoy the pictures, I have added the next A4 page of chart to show scale, as you can see its pretty much the same size as the chart

July 26th 2011

Almost at my page finish, I hope! Just 2100 stitches to go.

I havent been able to do much these last couple of weeks as I had two commissions, one for CrossStitcher which I finished Friday and another for Gold, which I have just finished, phew! Thankfully, at least for a day or two I have no other projects pending, so the plan is to catch up with the housework I have ignored whilst working, then get these last stitches done on Page 3, I feel like I have been working this page forever.

I have just been playing with the numbers a bit, I placed another order for threads today, this brings my threads purchased for this project to 120-ouch!

The total number of stitches on this project is a whopping 151,200 stitches, so far I have stitched approx 17,752, just 11.7% So only a teeny 133448 stitches to go........................

I can usually get 1000 stitches done on a good day, so I hope to be back with you by Friday with a page finish (finally) thank you for sticking with me through my slow times, I hope it will be worth the wait.

And update on Night Queen!

She is a little neglected, but I stitch on her when I can, even if its just 100 stitches at a time, and slowly, but surely, there is progress.

I have brought, just 10 more skeins of threads to add to the tally.

Here she is, page 3 almost completed

A closer image:

Please ignore the slightly grubby fabric, as you can imagine with a piece this large it is picking up the dust a bit, the whole thing will be carefully laundered when it is completed.

Thank you for reading :)

And a few more........

Projects published so far in 2011

Thank you so much to everyone who has emailed me and messaged me about this project, good news is, I have stitched on her some more, bad news is, the next page isnt quite finished.

I thought I would share a few pictures of some of the stitching projects which have kept me busy so far this year, I only share pictures once they are published in the magazines
