Faded Glory Progress

Ever notice how some projects just do not show their progress very readily? With the last project, progress was showing very, very quickly. #25 out of the Bin O'Shame is such a project. I am having to go a bit slower on this one than the others as there is a metric f-ton of quarter stitches involved. I am actually dreading the upper left corner of this piece because that is where the bulk of the quarter and three quarter stitches are located. I am hoping it will not be as bad as I am thinking it will be. I am determined to finish this in time for what would have been my father's 69th birthday on the 29th of August. This project is special because I foolishly thought that I could finish it within 3 weeks working a full time job. It was not long after, maybe two weeks, that he found out that he had pancreatic cancer. He died in October that same year and for obvious reasons, I have not been able to touch it since then. I have attempted to stitch on it every now and again, but it was just too painful. This year is somehow different and it doesn't hurt as much. 

Well, at any rate, here is what I have in four days of progress:



Design: Faded Glory from Portrait of the Civil War (an OOP booklet)


Designer: Jeanette Crews Designs




Fibers: DMC 347, 415, 762, 930, 931, and 3328
