Love it!

How did you do the tint in the dress and shoes?  Crayon tint?

I did one of her patterns (the one with all the books) and I stupidly used watercolour pencil crayons to tint the books and the colour bled out past the stitch line.

That is gorgeous.

I've been a bit more motivated this month, which I attribute to Veronica Mars popping up on Canadian Netflix.  Always wanted to watch it, and now I'm nearing the end of Season 2 so I've gotten in quite a few hours on this project in May.

Horsies!  If I keep up this pace I will have no trouble finishing this by October.

I really like the blues and purples in the water in that pattern.

Still amazed at the patience!   Shocked

It helps that I am also very stubborn.

Here is my March & April progress.  Just a bit of snow on the left side and I started the horsies.

Likely May will be a slow month too- we are mid-DIY-kitchen reno.  The kettle is in the living room, the dishwasher is downstairs, and everything is covered in drywall dust.  However, it will be nice to open cupboard doors without them coming off in my hand.

That adaptation of a pattern is truly impressive, very nice work!

I missed my Mar deadline, but had little to show.  Maybe April will show more progress, but as we're about to demolish and DIY our kitchen, so maybe not.

Please do join in with the end of the month progress shots.  I found it a bit motivating as well (at least in January, ha).

Jexxican, that is really pretty!

Here is my February progress.  Knowing i committed to update at the end of every month helped motivate me to work on it.

I tend to do chunks at a time.  Not as precise as 10 x 10 but I'll pick a section, like the house or haystack for example, and work on that.  I am glad to be done that dumb haystack!  It doesn't look like much, but had a ridiculous number of colour changes.

What do you guys do while stitching? I am watching The Good Wife on Netflix while working on this project and I'm now on Season 3.

Hi!  I started the Big Project Stitch Along 2007, and am back as I finish this:

My progress thus far.  I started in 2013, want to finish this year.  This is the most difficult project I've worked on, sooo many thread colour changes and lots of blending.
