Gifted Gorgeousness SAL - June edition =)

Well, this month, unlike last month, I have some progress to show for the Gifted Gorgeousness SAL. I put a few hours into the Map of Middle Earth and did some 2200 stitches on it. Considering how big the project is, this is not really much, but I think that if I can put in around 2000 per month, I will slowly by steadily get this done one day ;-) And after all, progress is still progress.

So this is Middle Earth as of mid-april when you last saw it:
And this is where I am now:
There are now 12000 stitches in, so still a way to go ;-)

I am also trying a new technique to avoid gridlines when working on big blocks of color. I'll explain this in my next post (which will be Kriemhild's Revenge), because you can see it better on that project. But you can already see that there is a sort of zick-zack line instead of a strait edge ;-) Up to now, this looks like quite promising.

  7. Thanks for taking part in GG this month. Ewa is stitching Middle Earth too. It's an amazing design. The zig zag edging is a good idea. I have never stitched in blocks before but I would be concerned about the lines appearing especially in a long term project like this.
    Dyelots in thread would worry me too!
