On the 1st December 2014, I began the Heaven and Earth Design Parliament of Owls by Scott Gustafson.
This design has 28 pages of chart and has 91 colours all up. I am stitching it on 25 count evenweave, 1 strand of floss over 1 thread of fabric, starting in the top left corner on Page 1. This is also my first project to use the parking method properly and so far I am finding it very easy. This has also helped to minimise some errors. Although when first starting this project I had to re-stitch the first 20 stitches or so as I had done them in the wrong colour. Hope it is smoother sailing now I have some progress made. Here are my materials ready to go:
As you can see, I have chosen bobbins and a bobbin box to store the thread/floss for this project.
Here are the progress pictures so far with dates. As you can see I am a relatively slow stitcher, mostly because I work full time and have other hobbies as well as stitching.

The picture above is rather special because this is what 1% of the project looks like. Just 99% to go! I am aiming to finish the page this month but that will depend on how much confetti there is. By the looks of the chart I should start seeing the face of one of the owls soon!
Happy Stitching 😀
