But now for something more exciting and the reason why I'm late - I took a couple extra days to actually finish the first colour on The Loneliness of Autumn! I am caught up on stitching up until the 29th and that was just enough to finish the 939. That is 16.670 stitches or 14.03% done!
So far, I've spent 91:56h on this. I think it's amazing how much of the design is recognizable already! Next up are a bit over 11k stitches of 3371, a very dark brown. Judging by the image on PK, that colour won't really show anything new but 'fortify' what's visible already, just making the excisting stitching a little more dense. With any luck I'll get this done by the end of the year and it should bump me up to about 25% too! So, guess there won't be a more excisting colour for me, but that's alright, I'm pretty content with the progress I am making ^_^
Now if you want, you can hop over to Rachel's, whom I'm SALing this with. She just finished her second colour and starting the third, so things are very exciting over there as well!
