Transcendence: Sixth Post - Page 22

I'm happy to say that, between the recovery people and my own stash, I am only missing two charts.  Her Special Place and Water Dragon, my two latest purchases.  I think everyone broke the site with the 40% off sale because I can't get on the site to get to Michele's e-mail to see if she'd be so kind as to send me those two charts.

But in the mean time I was able to work on Transcendence, yay!  And let me tell you the time has been difficult.  Rahenna finally started working on hers and is on page three already, she's tent stitching on 28 ct black fabric with two threads.  It was Rahenna's start that got me started on him again.  Also, Thea has been making excellent progress on her Mini Transcendence, so that doesn't help me in trying to keep him in the drawer either.  It's fun, all three of us are working on the same artwork, but we'll all end up with different results.  Keep up the good work ladies!

I just still really love this piece.  I can't say enough good things about it.  Adele Sessler did such a wonderful job with the colors and it just makes this a complete joy to stitch.  I love working on it, but I want it done now so I can hang the finished project on my wall!  With that said, I do have some goals for this year, but with this project I'm not going to keep myself limited to goals.  If I want to stitch him I will.  I think I'll mostly be putting him down during the times that I want to give my eyes a rest from working on the black fabric.

Here are the pics, only of page 22.  Both pics are heavily lit to allow you to see the progress since I've only done dark colors so the color isn't completely true.  Currently I'm over 50% through the page.

Here's where I was when my hard drive crashed:

I think I might work on Little Snap Dragon to give my eyes a rest and I stopped in the middle of a color which I don't like doing.  Never fear, Transcendence won't be put away for long.


  1. I love my Mini Transcendence and he's a joy to work on. I love watching you and Rahenna working on the full size version and I agree with how we are all stitching the same artwork but will all have very different results in the end. Keep up the fantastic work!

  2. I can't wait to see more on this, Mini Transcendence is in my pile all kitted up ready to go but I really can't start another until I get one of my wips finished!
