One fun project I pulled out this month was Dark Forces. To recall, this is a full coverage by Tilton Crafts, my first project of the size, and I started it back in 2015. I had worked on it almost exclusivly for about half a year, until the first row of pages was done, and barely touched it since, so it was high time it got some love again! I started of here - as you can see, I did about half a page in the last five years or so:
I had worked on this strictly in columns before, but now that I'm using Pattern Keeper, I decided to work page by page and colour by colour instead. During the course of ten hours, I got about 1.500 stitches in, and brought this page prety close to a finish:
I'm hoping to work on this about once a month now to hopefully finish two or three more pages by the end of the year. We'll see how that goes!
This looks interesting. Blue is my favorite color.
Leonore: Nice progress, sometimes I want to put a project aside for a while, then I go to beading, or stain glass projects, I just cannot bring myself to starting another cross stitch design, not sure why.
I am looking forward to seeing your progress, blue is my favorite color.
If it wasn't for Pattern Keeper would you have stitched on this again? 1500 stitches in 10 hours on a project that complicated is awesome progress! :)
What great progress on that stitch-dense piece, Leonore! Your young eyes can handle that--my ancient ones sure couldn't :) Hope June is a good month for you!
Goodness I remember you getting this - I'd forgotten all about it! I look forward to your progress.
Leonore: What great progress, oh my so many stitch's.
Beautiful colours in this one. The Pattern Keeper seems like a great app. Everyone is raving about it!
