Finished Page 7!

I finished page 7!! Only 2 pages left to go. For those new to my blog. This is Hold on to Hope from HAED. I'm doing her on 28ct evenweave 1 thread over 1 thread. The fabric is a sparkly pink color. (I know it doesn't show up very well.) This is 25,311 little x's. I have 85 days into her. Of course that is here and there. I started her in August 2012 according to my blog so it is definitely time for her to earn her place on the wall. My goal is to finish her this year!! Page 8 has 5,113 stitches and page 9 only has 852.

I posted the other day about how I ordered the new project. It was a little pricey for everything but I was excited about using the special threads and the cute little buttons to add to the finished piece. Plus the hardware for the bell pull hanger. So I knew it was worth the cost. In the afternoon I got an email that I won $250! So it will pay for all 4 seasons. How perfect!! Definitely meant to be if you ask me. Now to stalk my mailman. Like I don't have enough projects right? LOL
