I’ve managed to do about 15 hours work on The Dratteds since I last took a progress piccie, and I’m starting to see the final deadline a lot closer now … I chopped off all of my highlighted parts of my working copy, and I’m surprised how little is now left. I think I’ll meet my self-imposed deadline and see this finished within the next two months 🙂 Here’s the progress to date, with a before and after piccie from when I last took a photo:
When Sharon saw this piece in real life, she was surprised how big it was – it’s 234 stitches wide x 150 stitches high … I have to admit, though, it looks pretty gorgeous stitched up, even though it’s a nightmare to stitch with all those greys. I’ll be quite sad to eventually see these Dratteds leave home.
This week it isn’t a great stitching roster, so not much will be done until possibly next week, when I need to concentrate on my scissor fob exchange.

Hurrah for you, that is a lot of progress! The end is in sight. I didn’t realize it is such a HUGE project. WOW!
That is a big project! the dolphins look real!
You are really getting there. I just looked behind me and saw it hanging and you are doing a great job on it.
Great job on those dolphins! It’s funny how you’ll miss them once they’re gone.
Your dolphins look great!
Anne, it looks beautiful!!
You’ve done a lot! It really doesn’t look as if there’s much left to do 🙂
Wow, Anne, you rock! This looks fabulous!
Huge progress, Anne!! Way to go! 😀
Your decadent stitching day in jammies sounds wonderful!!
Your dolphins look beautiful Anne.
They are gorgeous, and so life-like!
My gosh! They truly are far along now – how lovely! Yep, you could probably finish them by the end of the year.
Great progress Anne, and yep, they DO look huge to me! Have a good week! 🙂
The dolphin piece looks great! Can’t wait to see more progress on it. Keep up the good stitching!
That looks magnificent….lifelike…wow. I can’t wait to see more of its progress.
These are looking amazing! You have really made a lot of progress on them. Beautiful!
Anne, there is absolutely NO WAY I would ever give such a masterpiece away! I did give a piece to my daughter with 217 hours in it, but I was so sick of it, I wanted to get rid of it. This is one of the most breathtaking pieces of work I’ve ever seen, and I can’t wait to see it when it’s done.
I hate to admit it, but it’s in my stash. Why do I hate to admit it? Cuz I’ll never do it, and I know it, LOL!
What a great Progress!!!
You are really making great progress…the “dratteds” are looking wonderful!
