The Loneliness Of Autumn - 220 hours

Hello everyone!

My intention for November was to stitch two months' worth on The Loneliness Of Autumn, but Naughty November sort of got in the way so I haven't quite caught up yet. But I'm only one month behind, so that's still achievable in December.

This ten hours saw me finish 740, tangerine at exactly the 220 hour mark.

So, first up, the comparison between the 210 and 220 hour marks where I added the 740 tangerine to the bottom half. The reflections of the lights are certainly much more defined:

And then the comparison photos after the end of the 8th and 9th colours. This is now 42.81% complete after 28,512 stitches:

Next up, a new colour! It's 743, medium yellow of which there are 1,811 stitches. These are mostly in the gaps between the white lights and their yellow glows, although there are some scattered among the branches too.

Take care,

  1. That tangerine really makes a difference to the effect.

  2. Gorgeous. I just love watching it grow like this. Sooooo cool.

  3. That does make a really big difference in the dimension of the piece and really fills in that right side too.

  4. Wow, that colour looks great! I can't wait to get into the yellows and oranges again myself.
