Sistine Chapel Page 2 - Completed

I have worked on my Sistine Chapel this week.  I finished page 2 of 347!!!!  Love how it is looking!  I find that once get started on a page I just can't stop.  It is fun to stitch!  The only thing I don't like, is that almost every symbol is a blended thread.  If you are scratching your head on what  a blended thread is, it is where you have one strand of two different colors that are stitched together.  You can't use the loop start with this method.

I am working on a RR project right now for my friend Berly.  This is surprise themed RR where you pick a theme and everyone who stitches picks a design they like. When you get your RR theme home, you are surprised at what everyone has stitched for you.   She wanted everyone to stitch kitchen towels for her.   I would love to show what I am stitching but it is a surprise.

It is looking great.

At first I read it as 34 pages. Then I fell of my chair when I realized it was 347!! Yay for you for tackling such a big project.

I remember blended thread from a Theresa Wentzler I did years ago...What a pain! But it's looking amazing so far! You ought to get your hubby to take a pic of you working on it with all the extra material draped around you! I just can't imagine!

Blended threads always look great. I have a lot of them in Dimensions Gold Collection designs. I'll be watching your progress for years and years and years. You're so brave!!
