How big are they? The don't look like they'd be epically massive, but looks can be deceiving. :grin:

One is 177x244 and the other is 179x244 (not counting my oops at the bottom of 11th that I'm hoping to turn into something really cool when it's all done). I'm stitching 11th on 18 count and will probably stitch 10th on the same count.

Here's a link to the patterns...I highly recommend them! :nod

Our heatwave broke and we have been having seasonable temps, so I broke out Treasure Hunt Bookshelf again!

Another row done, a total of 4,000 stitches now complete! And a touch over halfway done with page one :nod

wow, you've made a lot of progress since I last saw it (must've missed it before because of evil photobucket :cry: )

Thanks guys!!! :blush:

Trying something new (have no idea how it will work out)...here's a link to my Google Photos album which has all (theoretically) my WIP pics from this project to date!

Works for me. :D Man. :shock: That's a lot of parking. Almost looks like weaving. I imagine when you have a pattern that big and with so many colors, that would be a good strategy to employ. I don't think I've ever stitched more than 2, maybe 3, colors at one time. I do have a tendency to be lazy though and "park" my threads on the side when I finish with the color and wind up with 3 dozen threads waiting to be weaved in and cut off. lol.

Glad that worked!

That method sounds a lot like me with my yarn crafts...do a bunch of work on a project (usually scarves and snowflakes that I work on mass producing) and save taking care of all the ends for last :P

Trouble with parking that much...moving the strings out of the way when it's time to take a picture...like today! Thanks to a bunch of stitches in 310 and 939, I got another row of 800 done this weekend! :wiz

Update time! Another row of 800 stitches on Treasure Hunt Bookshelf...AND did a little work on page 5 of Eleventh Doctor Stained Glass! (mom had to take a pic of my parked threads to post on Facebook :P)

Also, there is a pic up in my VG topic. (and I also weaved in ends on 30 someodd scarves)

All this crafting brought to you by sick days (just a little stitching), a planned 4 day weekend (to avoid move in day for the university and then the eclipse (a...traffic (I live in the path of totality); b...who knows what it would do to my head (bit of a headache but no migraine...blessed!); and c...got to watch with my family!); and binge watching of Voyager (almost done with season 6), Prisoner (watched all but 2 episodes), and many Premiere League matches and baseball games :P

:wiz Another 800 stitches done on Treasure Hunt Bookshelf...if I'm thinking correctly, only 18 more rows until page 1 is done!
