Autumnal Abstract - 90 hour update

Hello all!

My stint on Autumnal Abstract continues to go at lightning speed and I'm still loving it!

So, without further ado, here are the usual pictures:

After 80 hours

After 90 hours

I'm continuing to stay with this project and have even put the thought into my mind that there's a possibility it could be completed by the end of the year! However, with Christmas getting in the way I am not setting my hopes too high.

I'm still receiving lovely comments about this piece, so thank you all very much. It's a joy to stitch and I'm thinking that in the future I may stitch it in a different colourways - there are only 24 colours so converting them into, for example, blues, lilacs and purples, would not be difficult.

In the meantime, work continues behind the scenes for something I will share with you at the beginning of December - aren't I a meanie?

So until next time,

All the best and
Happy stitching :)

Such a lovely piece and you are doing so well with your progress.

Keebles said...

Great progress! The piece almost has a calming effect to it and I could easily see converting the colors (especially to purples)!

Linda said...

Wonderful progress Rachel. The colors are fantastic. I just went looking for the kit but it sure is expensive.

Lovely progress :)

Annie said...

I'm really loving this one, and enjoying your updates! I'm impressed at how quickly you're working it.

Such a beautiful project!
Your needle is on fire, you're flying through it :D

Lulu said...

Beautiful progress! I hope you meet your goal of finishing this by the end of the year. I have the same goal for a piece I'm currently stitching :)

Rachel said...

Thank you! Being able to stitch in long stints really helps too. :)

Rachel said...

Thanks Keebles. It really is calming to stitch. :)

Rachel said...

Thanks Linda. Kits are never cheap but I do remember this was about £40 when I bought it way back. Well worth it though!! :)

Rachel said...

Thank you Emma.

Rachel said...

Thanks Annie. Lots of late nights and blocks of colour are helping me along quickly. :)

Rachel said...

Thanks Mii! I need to correct you to needles (plural) though! I've just started on my third needle for this project!! :)

Rachel said...

Thank you Lulu. Although my goal is not set in stone I wish you luck for your goal. :)

Cinzia said...

I have been searching for this kit for a while but cannot find it anywhere!! Can you tell me where did you get it?
Thank you!

Rachel said...

Hello Cinzia. I bought this kit when it first came out about ten years ago. It has been discontinued for a long time so your best bet is ebay I suppose. However, once I have finished this project (and because a few people have shown an interest in it) I shall be offering the chart as a giveaway on my blog. So keep your eyes peeled and you may be in with a chance of winning!! :)

Cinzia said...

I surely will!
Bye for now,
