The Loneliness Of Autumn - 170 hours

Hello everyone!

First on my list of 'catching up with stitching missed in the last few months' is The Loneliness of Autumn, a design by Leonid Afremov which I am SALing with Leonore.

Leonore has been continuing as planned, but my last update for this was at the end of April. I should be able to catch up by the end of the year, and got off to a good start this week by reaching the 170 end-of-May mark.

The ten hours consisted wholly of 3371, dark brown. There weren't any decent blocks of this colour but it did help fill in gaps on the tree trunks and lampposts. I'm about 3/4 of the way down and, although the difference isn't strikingly obvious, you can just about make out some denser tree trunks and branches:

The next ten hours, which I'm hoping to also complete this month, will involve finishing 3371 and starting the next colour, the lovely medium tangerine 741. I'm certainly looking forward to adding another proper autumnal colour!

Take care,
Rachel x

It looks great Rachel. Unfortunately brown fill ins are hard to see the progress on so I am looking forward to seeing the tangerine color since it is bright and should be easier to see!

Looks great Rachel.

Definitely a fuller look to the project with the 3371 added and even more next update!

So happy to see you catching up on TLOA now! It's subtle, but I can see the difference the 3371 made for sure. And getting to 741 will be really exciting!

I love seeing this `grow´ Such an interesting design.
