Transcendence: Second Post - Page 21

I've been working on finishing page 21 of Transcendence.  There are two reasons for this, one, I'm sick and tired of black from Friends Forever, and the amount of confetti on page 21 is driving me nuts so I needed to just suck it up and do it, the rest of the pages in this row are going to be easy.  Pages 19 and 24 are almost all black background, so very few stitches.  My goal this year is to get pages 19 through 21 completed, but I really want to finish the whole row.  But that's dependent on getting my other goals for the year done.

So page 21 is finally finished and it looks awesome.  I was worried as I was working on it, but when I finally got that last color in it was incredible the way the butterflies just seemed to finally pop.  I do think that the picture got a little washed out.

I'm tempted to continue with pages 19 and 20, which I'm going to do together since 19 is a small stitching page without all the black to stitch.

But, I think I'm going to finish up the color I'm working on with Magical Arrival before coming back to this one, or moving back to Friends Forever.

† To my non stitcher friends: Confetti is a term used when a there aren't large blocks of color, just a bunch of different colors thrown together, like a bunch of confetti.


  1. What a gorgeous page finish! I love the colors, they are so vibrant =)

  2. Holy cow, I'm so excited to see someone else doing this design! Well, I haven't started yet, but... I will as soon as my fabric arrives. I'll be stitching on black as well, because that's a LOT of background and I don't want to do it. :)

    I'm so happy to see a WIP, now I know I made the right decisions - working on black and doing the full sized chart. The detail is gorgeous!

  3. Gorgeous, I hope my mini looks half as good!

  4. Thanks so much for your posts. Also, thanks Rahenna and Gizzimomo for becoming my first two followers!
