Singing & Stitching (from June 2015 Update)

I’ve finished page 6 of Nocturne, which means the whole top row is now finished! This is tented on 25 count lugana using 2 over 1 on the light colours and 3 over 1 on the dark and mid tones.

Current progress:

I extended my Q-snap from an 11x17 to a 14x20 inch frame. Nocturne now fits perfectly across the width of the frame, which means no frame creases in the sides!!!

Sparkly Clouds & Violins ( from 22nd March 2015)

I have finished page five of Nocturne! There is one more page of clouds to stitch to complete the first row.

Some mid page sparkle:  photo IMG_2582_zpsfgaxhcta.jpg

Nocturne Update, 3rd February 2015

I've managed to finish page four which takes me to five pages completed! This takes Nocturne from 9.97% to 12.43% complete. It feels good to jump into the double digits!

I've almost completed 10 percent of Nocturne!  Here is where it's at now:

Stitched on 25 count cream Lugana, tented 3 over 1

Nocturne Restart September 2nd 2014                                          

I have restarted Nocturne on 25 count Lugana (tenting, 3 over 1) in hopes I can finish it in half the time! This also takes the chart size down to a more conservative finished size. It is unfortunate to restart after all the stitching I've done (I'd almost finished 5 pages!) but I really think it’s worth it. I restarted it on the 2nd September and have managed to complete the following in a month (with full crosses this would have taken me about two or three months):

Update on Nocturne: April 2014

It's been awhile since I worked on this.  I ran out of krienik which put a stop to the stitching.  Plus I've been working on Umbrella Sky.

Update on Nocturne: January 2013

I've really enjoyed stitching page four.  Kreinik has been added to her face and hand.  I've been neglecting Umbrella Sky to work on this... I think it's time to go back to Umbrella Sky and stitch with a different colour palette!


Update on Nocturne: First three pages completed!

Finished product should look something like this!

  1. I have this one started but I am not as far as you. Love seeing the progress.

    1. Thank you Laura! It's always great to find others stitching the same projects! Karen from ft ft ft stitch is also working on Nocturne and is further ahead than me at the moment! I do plan to pull it out and stitch more in 2017 😃
