WIP Wednesday #247

Morning everyone! First things first – happy birthday to my Melbournite brother Rob x

Last week’s challenge was up to 1000 stitches on something that involved collecting a dragon egg. I chose my Teresa Wentzler kit, The Guardian, & I was so happy to see the cliffs emerge. The softer, distant cliffs are half-stitch, so I ended up with over 650 of those (226 “real” stitches) while the nearer cliff is full cross using the same blends. I do wonder if TW would use the same blends now that DMC has expanded so much more than it was in 2000 (the copyright date for this kit)?

This week’s challenge is one point for every 100 stitches, again up to 1000, on your favourite WIP. I’m breaking away from one of the Ultimate challenges to use Mermaid of Atlantis. I do love how this is working up. The 28ct Lugana fabric is a mystery one (I can’t find the label, eep, but I think it’s a Silkweaver) but I love the mottled effect.

Have a good week!
