Only 275 thousand stitches more to go... Just kidding. You're making great progress with this one. This is the regular one, not the mini, right? Not that I would refer to 75k stitches as "mini".

Actually, that's fairly close to how many I have left :P Yup, it's a regular one, so the entire project is 282,500 stitches. When I finish this page (it's a 3 day weekend...so we'll see what happens!), that will be 7,840 done. That will leave me with 274,660 stitches left! :yahoo:

Thanks! :D

Looking great! Love a bit of sparkly aida, too (which reminds me I'm almost out of it and need to order some more soon!)

Update time! With my blocks done, I have ZERO video game projects going on :tomato:

But, I did break out some old projects and started a new one!

Here's are my current WIP pics...

Eleventh Doctor Stained Glass...(it's sideways...oops!)

No work on Eleventh (though, I did pull out a bunch of 310 so I could start stitching the outlines on Tenth on a piece of aida I set aside as I was spring cleaning...but, it turns out it's not quite big enough :banghead: but, yay for always starting in the top lefthand corner and counting my way there...I would have been SO frustrated if I had started it and then found out that it was too small)

But, I did work some more on Nativity...

Hope to finish that row this week! There's 6ish colors so far...and I need natural light :P

Speaking of finishing rows...finished a row on Treasure Hunt Bookshelf! Only 18 actual rows left on this page (I like to be confusing...individual rows and 10 row blocks, also called rows :P)

Everything's looking great. Too bad on the 10th restart, but it seems like you didn't get too far in before realizing. I have a question; for the opalescent fabric, do the sparkles show through the stitches at all? Considering it's a full coverage project, I was curious. Even if it doesn't I imagine the sparkly border still adds a lot of bling.
