Dark October - week 1 progress

Hi again!

Just a quick post to show you the progress on my Dark October stitching. Whilst other stitchers are deep into their Dark October Halloween projects, I am slowly stitching a small piece from Sue Hillis' Dark Shadows set. In case you didn't guess, this is the chandelier.

Here's my progress after day 1:

And after week 1:

You can't see it in the photo but the Etoile is certainly adding a tiny bit of sparkle, as will the beads once it's their turn.

Naturally I'm absolutely desperate to work on it more, but I'm being a good girl and putting it away after adding just two thread lengths each day. I'll show another update after week two (unless I stop being good and have finished it by then!)

Take care,
Rachel x

I'm falling in love with this more every time you post it. Too cute. I will be starting the Lizzie Kate October today and hopefully getting it done fast.

Awesome progress Rachel.

I love the way the black looks on that fabric! Nice progress for only two lengths a day.

You have made good progress on it!

It would be hard to put down as you know just a few more hours will get it done. Good luck with sticking with your usual plan in the face of this temptation. You can do it! (whatever you decide. :) )

That's great progress! I can understand that you want to work on it more, though.
