August WIPocalypse

Almost a week late, and boy, but a week it's been! Life has been a little hectic lately, but I finally managed to get my monthly due on TLoA done, so I am ready to write this post. 

First though, the question of the month, which is Have you been participating in gatherings via online chats (Zoom, Google Meet, etc) during the COVID pandemic? If so, what have been the best formats in your opinion? and strangely, the answer is no, I haven't! Almost all my stitching friends are online, and I used to have a somwhat-monthly IHSW hangout with a group of them, but lately, we've been finding ourselves having other plans all the time. Maybe we can get back to it soon!

Now, as to my progress on TLoA, which I SAL with Rachel, who hasn't checked in for some time due to personal circumstances. I try to share my progress on this every month, though -and  I made great progress again, adding 2,444 stitches in August (and 538 so far in September to get caught up after a weekend away). I finished the 720, did all of the 1,567 stitches of 762 - which isn't very exciting for you, since it hardly shows up on the white fabric, but is exciting for me because I finally got to work in some of the as-of-last-month unstitched areas instead of always going around the edges of what was there already!

Currently I am working on 644, with only about 200 stitches left. The beige-gray doesn't show up that much better, but a little, and follows about the same path as the 762. Once that's done, I will move on the 3820, a nice golden yellow, and also the first colour with less than 1,500 stitches!

Currently, I am at 70437/118800 stitches, which marks 59.29% of the design. I also did a good job catching up on the stitching I was missing from earlier this year - only about a week's worth left now, and I'm sure I'll be able to get that done by the end of the year!

Leonore: Wow so many stitches, it really is showing a design now, so very pretty, I have seen Rachels blog but not for a while.
So close to the finish.
I only do Blogland, that's it for my little brain.
Have a great day

Autumn is really coming along well now, you'll be changing colours much more frequently from now on.
