Sistine Chapel update

Well, the last round of my rotation found me working on The Sistine Chapel.  I just finished page 4!  Due to the switch from Daylight Savings Time, I got in an extra hour of stitching.  My behind was a bit sore from sitting for so long, but it was worth it.

Here's my progress photo:

Next up is my focus piece, La Belle Dame Sans Merci.  The knight will finally start to get a body!  Plus, there will be a bit of sparkle as some of his armor uses blending filament!  I seriously, can't wait.  

Well, I do have to wait a bit.  The Seattle Seahawks are playing at 1:25pm and I have to watch them!  That means that my Dimensions ornament will see at least a little progress.

Happy Stitching!

I'd love to know how big this piece is gonna end up being when you get done. Number of stitches?

Wow, that's a seriously massive project - congrats on the page finish!

Hi, my name is Cinzia, from Naples, Italy. I was roaming through some of the blogs I follow and came across yours, and I loved it! You are stitching two of my favourite charts, one being "God speed " that I have, and the other one "la belle dame" that I would like to buy. One question, does "la belle dame" chart has lots of confetti stitches? I seriously hate confetti!
Again, great works!

Cinzia, thank you for your lovely comments! Based on what I've done so far on La Belle, I would say that yes, it does have confetti but a manageable amount. One of the pages in the second row had about 50 stitches of various colors and the rest of the page was all black!

Hi Stacy, I am also starting to do the "Sistine Chapel" and was happy to see that you are also doing it. I need some advice, if you don't mind.

Because of its length and width it really doesn't fit on to a frame, I would have to fold part of it and work top section then the bottom section ?

Or just use a hoop and roll the material up in card board roll, you know those from aluminum foil so it does get dirty.

Many thanks and good luck with it and I will be watching your progress !

Kindest regards,
Michelle Demetra Aukett
