Eighteen Down...32 More To Go!

BAM! BAM! Here's the third square to Spring Snapperland...the Coop by Bent Creek -

I hate French knots. Do you know how many French knots are in this piece???? NINE! I did them though. I figured I would have some pretty funky chickens if I didn't give them eyes ;o)

Here is another progress picture with the other two squares -

Irene asked me what fabric I am using for this piece and as far as I know it's 32 count Smokey Pearl linen. I bought my Spring Snapperland kitted from Needlecraft Corner. I hope this helps :o)

Sharon wants to know how long it takes me to stitch each Snapperland and that's a hard question to answer since I don't keep track of hours, only days. For Winter Snapperland it took on average about three days to complete each box. I didn't really keep a good track of that one so it's a bit of guesswork :o) It looks like I have been a little slower with Spring Snapperland. Each box is taking me about four to five days to complete. I would say that being back to work has been a factor in this.

Terri has raised a very good question for me. She wants to know what I'm going to do about the colors in the border. Believe it or not, I didn't know because I didn't even look at those colors. When I looked at them last night, I was quite surprised! Brown flowers do not remind me of spring. I will definitely be changing them now and I'll keep my choices secret until it's time to reveal the completed project ;o)

You are flying through this! I have to say I'm with you on buying kitted projects. I usually ask my ONS owner to just package it all up for me. If not I struggle at getting it all and getting it all right!

Your doing your snapperland pieces about as quickly as it takes me to do my L*K stamps each month. I can't wait to see what you pick for the flower color.

Cathey -
I think my blog is done changing for the next few months! Just took me a bit to get it how I liked it. :)

Oh, you! I'm to be in an 11 person RR & haven't decided on what pattern(s) I want to use. Now I see your snappers coming along so nicely & I'm considering those! *lol*
Any word on your LTD yet?

Irene said...

Thanks for the info. I'm going to order this, but won't get it done as fast as yours.

It looks great! I love how all three pieces look together... it's going to look awesome when it's all stitched with the border.
