CaFS Page Finish

I've been working on Drama Queen quite a bit lately, but because it is such a complicated, confetti heavy piece (even though parking helps tremendously) I needed something simple to work on that wasn't so taxing. So I decided Catch a Falling Star was the perfect simple project.

Lo and behold, a page finish!!

This is my first big project using tent stitch, and while the speed is really nice, I'm not in love with the coverage. This project is stitched 2 over 1 tent on 25 count light blue lugana. Considering how much 939 (dk navy blue) there is, doing full crosses might have driven me insane. :)

This is one of my UCJC projects, and since it's a huge HAED, a page finish counts as a finish in the challenge. Yay! I haven't had a UCJC finish since June. I believe this is UCJC finish number 13.


  1. Hi :)

    I love Julie Fain's art so I will be following your progress with keen interest! :)

    I'm currently working on Wolves Peak and doing a whole page of black in full crossess drove me mental! lol

    In the second photo the coverage looks great. Cross stitches are meant to be admired from afar anyway, it will look spectacular when finshed :)

    Can't wait to see your next update!

  2. Congratulations on finishing your first page :D

  3. Congrats on another UCJC finish! I bet you were excited to get to stitch a new color when you got to the star! LOL

  4. Hello I enjoy following your blog! Congrats on the page finish! I am debating starting a similar design from HAED Chasing Away the Day, but for now I'll watch your progress on this project.

  5. Huh, I admire you for finishing this page, it looks.... dark ;-D
    It may be a struggle to stitch the background, but it will be wonderful when finished =)

  6. Beautiful stitching :) and great to have another UCJC finish!
