Great Wave Stitch-a-Long, part 20

Hi everyone! I can't believe that I've been working on this piece for OVER A YEAR NOW, and there's still so much left to go. But I do love it, and I love seeing it grow. Remind me in several months when I'm trying to decide what project to work on next that it might be nice to take on something SMALLER. 

Here's where I was last time:  

And here's where I am now:

I finished two columns, which means you can see Mount Fuji in the background! 

And of course, stitching Mount Fuji gives me the excuse to post this picture of me and Wil just below the summit of Mount Fuji back in 2019 -- one of our last big trips:

By the time of our next check in I hope to have the next column stitched, which would be a page finish and set me at 75% of the way done... minus all the backstitching, of course. 

Until then, why not check out the projects my fellow stitchers are working on: Avis, Claire, Gun, Constanze, Christina, KathyMargaret, Cindy, Heidi, JackieMegan, Deborah, Renee, Sharon, DaisyAnne, AJCathie, Linda, and Helen.


  1. haha! You've made some great progress in one year! Especially since my 10 year old project is only 26% complete... Great progress, keep it going!

  2. I daren't look to see how long I've been working on mine but I'll also hit the 75% mark next time (I hope). I'd challenge you to a race to the finish but I think you would probably win.

  3. gosh it doesn't seem that long since you began this piece!

  4. First: It´s me, rutigt (Gun), second: Love your progress!

  5. Great progress! The way weeks, months and years fly by - a year seems like no time at all to be working on this beauty :)

  6. Hard to believe you've been stitching this for so long already. Time whizzes by. But it's looking beautiful and you're making great progress!!

  7. Two columns is great progress. I look forward to seeing this 3 weeks from now when it is 75% completed. Love the photo of you also.
