Stitch Maynia 2016 - Day 1 - Research Project by Charting Creations - 01.05.16

If you haven't heard of Maynia before it is a phenomenon that I believe started last year.  The idea is 15 starts for the first 15 days of May.  A Facebook group was formed for last years Maynia and it is one of the friendliest stitching groups I have ever been in on Facebook.

So I thought I would join in this year because who doesn't want to have 15 new starts - although I have decided to go with 16 as it's 2016 this year.

My day 1 project is called Research Project by Theresa Mather and it is charted by Charting Creations.

This is what it will look like about 100 years from now!

And this is where I have got to with it today.  I am stitching it on 20 count white aida and doing 3 over 1 tent stitch.  I managed to get in over 600 stitches today and I'm very pleased with my progress - or I was until I looked at how small amount I had done compared to the size of the fabric!

It will now go into my rotation pile and hopefully get stitched on again in the not too distant future!  Come back tomorrow and see what my next project is.

Keep stitching and smiling

Ooo great start I love this pattern! I've never seen it before so now I have to go check out their other stuff!

That's a huge project! I wonder if all your other starts are as big? I guess we'll find out soon.

That is a gorgeous picture. Hopefully the tent stitch will make it go more quickly than full cross.
I did the DUCJC last year for the first and only time! It is fun to do these things at least once though.

Great start on this one and good idea to do tent stitch.

Any excuse for new starts! I look forward to seeing what you plan to start over the next 15 days. :)

Sorry I'm a bit late to the party but just wanted to pop in and tell you how excited I am that you are stitching this. I bought it in the last sale but it's in the way way distant future for a start, so looking forward to your wips.
