July Progress on 2015/2016 Challenge Pieces

Hello there!

Another month, another progress update on a couple of pieces I started for Debbies' Challenges back in 2015 and 2016.

July was another successful month, finishing Lizzie Kate's Summer Alphabet (posted previously) and working on:

Pretty Little Paris by Satsuma Street
started 19th February 2015; last worked on last month
finished The Eiffel Tower, stitched The Pompidou Centre, The Louvre and a bit more of Notre Dame

Summer from The Four Seasons
started 8th February 2015; not worked on since then
worked down one colour at a time

The gaps I've left are because I've found a mistake on the chart! I don't know about you but this is quite rare to me. Here's the original chart and as you can see the gaps should be stitched in a creamy-peachy sort of colour.

But this is the colour given on the chart, which I have a slight inkling is not quite right!

Actually, I think it's a simple typo and it's supposed to be 3771 not 3371 but seeing as I rarely pick up my stitching until after 10pm it's not something I can correctly check in artificial light (even with a daylight bulb).

If I actually remember to check during natural daylight hours, Summer will be finished in August (which means that all four seasons will have been completed) Pretty Little Paris will grow some more and the final Little Black Cat will make an appearance.

Take care,
Rachel x

Beautiful work. Good catch with the error. Glad you didn't stitch it all wrong.

Wonderful progress Rachel. I so love all of the fabric colors that you chose for your projects. I really need to get back to a pretty little city piece.

Great progress! I love those Seasons charts, I remember seeing them 2 years ago? when you were working on a different one.

I just love Pretty Little Paris! Those Satsuma Street charts are so colorful. I think looking at your's makes me want to add my Chicago one to my list of upcoming things to stitch. Wow great catch on the Seasonal chart.

Love all the colors. I've been doing a lot of 310 lately. Think I need some color in my life lol.

I've caught errors in charts before although none as weird as this one! It's almost as if they continued the tree into the sky hah.
