24 Hours of Cross Stitch Marathon - Time Block 1

I'm participating in this weekend's 24 Hours of Cross Stitch marathon hosted by Jen Lee of Quirks & Stitches. The goal is to complete 24 hours of stitching time beginning today and running through 11:59pm Sunday night. I've decided to break my marathon up into eight blocks of three hours each with a break of at least one hour between each block.

Block #1 (2-5pm PT)

For my first block of time, I decided to work on Ukrainian Solidarity by At the Point Studio. I'm stitching it on white 32 count Jobelan fabric using the called for DMC. During this three hour block, I put in a total of 433 stitches which averages out to 144 stitches per hour. It would have been a bit higher, but I had to do a couple of rounds of frogging (ripping out stitches) due to counting errors. According to Pattern Keeper, I progressed from 35.28% complete to 50.93% complete. Overall though, I'm happy with the progress I made during this block of stitching.

Here are my before and after photos for my first three hour block.
