I am trying to keep to schedule of 6 years.... about a month on each page, with a bit extra for busy times...
I do plan to make a list of all the things that happened while working on this piece (who knows, new place, marriage, kids.... Wink)

Hi everybody,

I know there is already a copenhagen topic on here, but not only is it very old and inactive, half of it is in Danish which I can't understand well enough...

My question is, does anybody have any tips for cross stitch stores in (the centre of) Copenhagen? I am going on a businesstrip there soon, and I am hoping for some shopping time...
I already found Sommerfuglen, but there must be more?

Thanks in advance for any help!

After three months of work:



The wrist is semi-fixed, I at least started stitching again.

Well, I am forced to slow down (actually stop) for a while now. I developed a cyst on my wrist, right (my stitching hand) and it is too painful to go on Sad It will take at least a month or more to get it fixed, so... a forced break Sad

Yeah, it is the final tapestry in a series of 6, the five senses and this one. I have seen them in Paris (the museum did a wonderful job exhibiting them), and I have read the book. I am looking for some non-fiction books on these tapestries, but haven't found it so far...

Sometimes I think I am insane in doing this... when I try to calculate how many days/months/years I will be stitching  based on how fast (or rather slow) I am going now... Another 14 years to go!  Undecided Embarrassed

I'm joining in, I'll need the motivation Cheesy

I just started on this http://www.scarletquince.com/pat.php?pat=UNK014 pattern from Scarlet Quince. Total size is 650 x 534 stitches, stitched on 18 count, with two strands of DMC (almost all blends of two colors).
My pattern is 54 pages long, and I am just taking it page by page.

The source image:


My progress so far:

Week 1 (24 hours total work)


Week 2 (62 hours total work)


I'll keep you all updated on my progress... I am doing small projects too, just to keep me sane Smiley
