Page 5 HD!

As promised, here is my Snow Princess page 5 HD:

Apologies again for the poor scan. I'm hoping to have an antidote to my camera problem this weekend, so watch this space! Click the link to my Snow Princess WIP in the sidebar for a slightly better view. I love the swirls and snowflakes that are coming into the background now.

So, the stats... I have now stitched over 25,000 stitches, which is just over 19.5% of the design. Last time I posted an update, someone asked how big this design was. It's 400 stitches wide by 318 high, which, IIRC is 127,200 stitches in total. I've just started on page 6, after which is a very narrow page 7 (just 25 stitches wide). After I've completed pages 6 and 7, I'm going to allow myself the luxury of stitching the page with the polar bear's face on it! I really think I'll need a break from the blues by then, and he's just so cute I don't think I'll be able to resist stitching him for much longer.

Thank you everyone for all your lovely comments. It's been great catching up on everyone's blogs. Carto, I'm known as 'SamanthaStitches' on the BBs. I'm sure I'll see you there. Nice also to hear that so many others will be watching Wimbledon. Wasn't Tim's match a nailbiter Mon/Tue? Mind you, we should come to expect that with him! Shame he didn't get much chance to play yesterday. I shall be glued to his match today though. Looks as if there's some other good matches coming up too. Time to get the strawberries out! ;o)

You're doing incredibly well with the haed! I agree with you, I think you deserve to stitch the polar bear as a treat for sticking with the background! Go on, enjoy!

Look at all that blue!! Wow, you've done so much and it's only 20%...that warrants another WOW!!

The match was nail biting, but I did have a mini bet with a couple of friends that he wouldn't get past that round. I don't think he'd have won if it hadn't been rained off.
