2021 Tokyo Olympics Stitching Challenge Start #6

Day 6 and it's time for another holiday/seasonal stitch. I don't know if any of you guessed it might not be Christmas/winter themed this time, and if you did, you're right! 

First a quick fun fact for the Olympics, did you know that gold medals are actually mostly made of silver? I only recently found this out. They're over 90% silver content, and enough gold to make it look golden. Apparently if they were entirely made of gold they'd be worth over $30K USD. So I can see why they can't use solid gold for the medals. 

Onto the new start!

Which will eventually look like this:


I'm changing up the fabric a bit though, and I think this might be a fun pillow some day when I finish it. Here's where I managed to get last night:
Pumpkin Patch by Lois Winston
stitched 2 over 2 on Pumpkin King by Chromatic Alchemy
with Cauldron by BeStitchMe

Another seasonal start; I have so many now! But it's all good. I'm starting a lot of things I've wanted to work on, and I don't think I'll quite get to triple digits by the end. :) 

I hope you're all staying healthy and enjoying your day. 

Happy Stitching!

    1. Oh, I don't worry about the WIP count, but I had thought I'd never get even close to 100 at one point. Now I figure stitch what I want and enjoy it. :) Thank you!

  2. Ooooh, love the new start! A bit like an Ink Circle, but not quite as dense. Glad you're enjoying all your new starts. I've decided that I won't feel guilty about the number of WIPs until 2022! :)

    1. Excellent mental health choice. :) Thank you! I'm pretty happy with this one as well. And as a monochromatic maybe it won't take forever, or will be an easy one to pick up and work on.

    1. Thank you! I had wondered when I'd ever use bright orange, and then saw this in my stash.

  5. That's a nice one, I thought it was blackwork from the photo.
    No danger of anyone melting their medal down for the gold then!

    1. Thank you, and yes, it has that look to it. I think most Olympic medals are worth more as is, especially the well-known athletes.
