It’s time to link up with a world-wide group of stitchers, to share progress on the diverse projects we’re working on.
My project is a kit by Letistitch: “together we are magic”. It’s 152 x 200 stitches big, stitched on 16 count aida and is full coverage. I decided, from the start, that I needed to grid my fabric and take this one page at a time, otherwise I’d get lost (and lose motivation) along the way.
Last time I showed you this photo
For this time, I am rather proud of myself, because . . .
this is where I’m up to. Although I haven’t added backstitch detail yet, I have completed page 1 (chart is printed on four pages of A3) and, if you look at the bottom right of chart, you can see the arrows that mark the centre of the design. I said design is 152 x 200 stitches. Page 1 covers stitches 80 x 110 which means I’m more than a quarter of the way through, even if I’ve still got 3 pages to tackle.
Here’s a close up
And here’s a reminder of what I’m actually working on.
It’s slower going that I had originally thought, but I’m feeling motivated knowing I “only” have 3 more A3 pages to follow!
Next update on 26th August!
