A DQ Milestone

I've been working pretty steadily on Drama Queen for the last little while, and this morning I hit a milestone -- 20,000 stitches done (or 25.89%).

The stitch count:

This coming weekend is an IHSW (International Hermit and Stitch Weekend) and I think I might just pull out my Tree of Stitches and finally work on part 3 (the dreaded French Knots).

Also -- I need to give a huge shout-out THANK YOU to Rachael of TimRachael's Blog for being so incredibly generous! She had a giveaway last week, and I won! So in my email yesterday, I received a chart from HAED. It's gorgeous!! It'll be yet another present for my mom ... eventually. I'm not sure when I'll have time to sneak it into my rotation. (Perhaps CJC 2012 will have to expand to 16 days!) It's QS Blue Butterfly by Ching-Chou Kuik.


  1. Congrats on passing the 1/4 milestone on DQ! My Fairy Wishing Well is currently at 46 800 stitches, which is about 20,97% of the total amount of stitches in the pattern.

  2. I'm a new follower of your blog, from the CJC Yahoo group. You have a wonderful list. Metamorphosis looks great! I agree, you should add day #16 to include this new HAED chart! It's so pretty! Happy Stitching!

  3. Thanks Heli!!

    Welcome Debbie, thanks for following. :) I think you're right -- I might just have to add a 16th day to my CJC. :P
