ATS finally an update

Hi! Here is an update on And They Sinned. The last time I posted was on 5/09

The stitch count is 809 X 169

I started it 01/01/08

It is bigger then Kellie, see her fingers, lol.




I am stitching on 36ct Edinburgh Flax with GAST 1 over 2.

I am awaiting a color for the angel. I ordered it thru J.J's sale over the weekend. Yea!! a stash sale. I went alittle over board, but hey I haven't had a good stitchy stash purchase for awhile, lol. I ordered most of the krenkik and beads for the ToT fairy.

BTW! Does anyone have any good suggestion for a fabby color for the ToT fairy and or the Mirabilia Halloween fairy, I just find the color of the fabby to be so drab. I would really like a splash of color. I really don't have a good LNS close by to do a toss floss.

Happy Stitching!!

Which Mirabilia Halloween Fairy are you talking about? I'm stitching (if you can call it that) the one that came in the kit on Picture This Plus' Golden Midas. You can see how it looks on my blog http://prettyinpnk.blogspot.com/2008/02/new-wip.html I have more of her done but don't have a picture. HTH

No suggestions for the fabric, but I wanted to say thanks for the ATS update (I just LOVE this!) and to join in your joy at catching a sale for those little splurges. ;)

This stitch count for the length is 809???? OMG! This is one incredible piece Ranae! I never realized it was that long. HOW are you going to frame it or are you? How many skeins of GAST have you gone through?

Ginnie said...

Oh this is one big project! You are very brave taking one on this size. It looks stunning.

ATS is looking beautiful. You are now in the home stretch. It is truly a spectacular piece.
I to have this in my stash to do "oneday". I have been playing around with the idea of dividing mine into 3 and doing it over 1. A little bit like Dutch Beauty. Just an idea though.

ATS is looking fantastic! That is such an awesome project. I bet framers shudder when they see those coming in the door! Picture this Plus has AWESOME fabby. They are great in helping with selections too...

Oh wow, Ranae, that is stunning! I didn't realise it was that huge!

Cricketstitch said...

This design is amazing, thank you for posting pics for us to see. What an inspiration!

Suzanne said...

This piece is amazing. What patience you have to get so much done. I didn't realise how big this piece actually is. It's on my wishlist to do, but I don't think that I would have anywhere to hang it once finished.

Julie said...

WOW!!! that is stunning, so much work, well done

Lennu said...

Oh it's gorgeous, what a wonderful piece it will be! It's such a large piece, good luck for stitching!!

Kathy said...

Oh my, what progress you have made. I have never seen it that close to done. Can hardly wait to see it complete. That would be awesome to have it finished in one year. There is still time.

Marita said...

Yikes that is huge. You have done some amazing work there. Congratulations.
