Rhyme and Reason. Updated 1st September.

I couldn't wait any longer. I started this about 3 days ago.

This is how much I've done so far

I'm stitching 2 over 1 on 25 count evenweave.

I think I'm addicted in a way I didn't think was possible!! Loving it!! :wub:

I am going to be hooked to your updates!!! There are so many HAEDs that I like - but not enought to spend the years stitching them (and I don't know where I would put them all anyway if I did finish them @rotfl: ) so I really love it when people share their WIPs and I can stitch vicariously through them! Looking forward to your next update!

That is so true. I need to live to about 150 to do everything I would want to. Already have an HAED addiction and I could so get into fractals too I think. Good thing I hate beading or the chatelaines would call, so I LOVE the forum because I get to stitch vicariously. Keep your updates coming. I love this one.

The finished design size is 953W by 451H, which on 25 count is 38" wide x 18" high :shock: The piece of evenweave is truly massive. I'm still fathoming out how to deal with it so it doesn't get too grubby, although I'm going to have to wash it when I've finished (in about 10 years time!) to get rid of the lines between the panels.
Sorry for the poor picture quality BTW, my camera doesn't really like focussing close up.
There are 73 nursery rhymes to spot in this piece. The first one I'll get to on this panel is on the 4th page I'll sew, unless I go down rather than across. Now there's an idea...... :thinks:

Happy Stitching

I'm just over half way down page one.
Image
There isn't half a lot of confetti in the trees!! I've decided to keep going down the chart rather than across (and hacking my way through the trees!) so I can pick up the first nursery rhyme. I can't believe how much enjoyment this is giving me, even the confetti!!! I thought I loved stitching before, but this is a whole new ball game! Hoping to get the first page done by the weekend ( :lol: )
