Yay, finally and it's a bit of a milestone as I have reached the bottom of the stitched area, just 8 more pages to go :)

Night Queen Back On The Hoop

It has been so difficult to find time to work on this project, but every day that I don't stitch her, I feel a little more guilty. I cannot believe the length of time she has been a WIP for :(

I have a bit of a gap between work, coursework and chaos and I am determined to keep working on her until I reach another page finish.  It is a part page at the end of the row and is only around 3800 stitches, totally do able in a few days :)

Whilst sorting the project and measuring this morning, I came to the conclusion that I will be cropping the design a little, she is just a little too long for the wall I plan to hang her on, I don't want to hide the bottom behind a sofa and risk rubbing and wearing on the threads, so i'm cutting it a little short.   Not by much, the last row of pages is only about 50 rows, I will be leaving these off, it won't make much difference to the design.

Good news is, after some quick calculations, that makes me past the half way mark :)

I started this project in May 2010 and am slightly embarassed that, over 3 years later, i'm only half way *sigh*.  I will be back in a few days with a picture of my next page finish.

Todays stats:  Total stitch count= 134,050.  Stitches done = 71,205 which is 53.11%
