During the past week I added about 600+ stitches to SK Seasons Winter – double my goal. I am pleased with the way this is stitching up and am anxious to get to the wolf but it is still at least another 4,000 stitch down the chart.
Have I mentioned that this chart is almost complete confetti? There are different levels of confetti and heavy confetti is sometimes defined as 10+ color changes in a 10 x 10 square. The hair in this little beauty has over 20 colors in each 10 x 10 square — I am liking the way it looks in spite of the slow going.
I have been cross stitching for 30+ years and in the past made a serious effort to avoid charts where the chart made the stitching seem like a job. My mom started cross stitching just after I did and in a relatively short time managed to complete some amazing pieces including several PB Moss charts. I finally understand the appeal for those ridiculous charts!
