September Crazy Domino Event - Projects 10-12

 It's time again for another update on this crazy project. The goal is to work on a lot of WIPs and try and link them in whatever way you can manage. I've linked some for same designer, same animal, the moon was in both, etc. 

Project 10 brings us to one that's been hanging around for a while. It was linked because there's a girl in this one, just like in Full Moon. It's part of 3 projects I'm stitching on one piece of fabric and I finished the second project earlier this year. This is letter G from Letters from Nora. I had stitched some previously, but had miscounted, so had to frog it all and start again. This is the start:

Letter G from Letters from Nora by Nora Corbett
stitched as charted 2 over 2 on 28ct Nuriel's Forest by Chromatic Alchemy

since I'm on 1000 stitches now, 1000 stitches got me to here:
and a pic of all 3 together:

There's some hope I'll finish by a certain birthday in November, but I'm not holding out hope. I have a back-up project, so maybe this can be a Christmas finish. 

Project 11 is one that I've had out a fair bit this year. Because fairies are romantic, and the next project has a kiss, I linked them that way. This is Kiss for a Snowman, a Dimensions kit, that started here:
and after 1100 stitches, of which many were half stitches in the background, it's here:

Again, there's some chance this will be a finish this year. I'm wondering if December will be a kind of "race to the finish" month where I try and get a lot of stuff done that's fairly close. 

Lastly, I linked Project 12 through the fact they both take place in winter. This is where Mini Winter Magic was when I last set it down a couple months ago:

It's funny how little difference 1200 stitches makes in a project this size, but there is some change, more depth to the dragons, etc. The challenges are great for this type of stitching, sort of stick in and get it done. 

And that's where we're at so far. I will admit to slowing down a bit as stress has crept up again, but I hope to get at least another couple projects done. If I can get to 15 for the month, I'll be happy with that. 

I hope you're all staying well and happy stitching!



  1. Nice projects, but it is not easy to stitch at least something on all of them

    1. Thank you! And you're right, you have to be sort of mentally in the right frame of mind. This worked very well this month.

  2. The stitch is really ramping up now! Well done on keeping up with the challenge.
    Funny how 1000 is loads on the first two projects and hardly visible on the HAED. Possibly why I am not a fan!

  3. Congratulations on keeping up with the challenge so far. I'm enjoying see your old WIPs and look forward to seeing what's next.

  4. Oh my goodness, you have been very busy, I would not be able to stay on track, you are very lucky to be so diligent about it.
    The designs you have here are wonderful, I really like the snowman so adorable.
    Have a great stitch filled week.



  5. How fun. Fantastic progress. Stress sucks. No other way to say it. Hope you can find a way to get it to leave you alone.

  6. Oh my, how I love these projects Tiff! The snowman is soo gorgeous and the NR piece will be beautiful! Well done for sticking to this challenge and I'm so impressed with all your progress.

  7. Oh wow, those stitches really added up fast! You've been doing so well. I get the feeling too that December will be a crazy finishing month for you!

  8. Frogs should not be frolicking with fairies! It's coming together nicely now though.
    Your snowman is looking good, December would be the perfect month to finish it.
    I can't wait to see more of the dragons in Winter Magic!

  9. Oh wow! This challenge has been fantastic for progress. Well done for keeping up with it! :)
