Mini Happy Dance!!


I finished my first page of Autumn Peace!!! 
5,616 stitches done!!!! It only took me 2 months!! Approximately 50 hours!!! Wow!! Now I've only got 56,384 more stitches to go! And about 700 more hours!!! Lol. 
Wow!! When I put it that way it seems like it's gonna take me the rest of my life to get it done!! Next page I'm gonna TRY to get it done in less than 2 months! Good luck to me!! 
Thank you all for reading! Hope you have a great weekend, I'll be back tomorrow with an update on my ornament.

Autum Peace update

Last time I showed it (June 21st)

Today (a month later):

I am SO close to a finish on this page!! Probably just a few more hours to go and I'll have my first page finish for this project. I can't believe it's taken over a month and a half! But! The ole' stitchy bug just was on summer vacation I guess! But I'm back at it, and I'm sure the next time I post an update on this I will have a page finish. 
Thank you for reading, and I hope the rest of your week goes well!

"Let it Snow" ornament #3 progress


Here is the ornament I'm currently working on. It's an adorable snowman wearing  a tall, pointy hat.
So sorry I've not been around so consistently. My hubby deployed again last week, so been dealing with that. 
I always tend to go in a funk for awhile right around the time he leaves. 
So, I've been zoning out in front of Netflix for a lot of the day, not really able to focus well on hobbies. I'll get there though. 
Thank you for your patience as I try to get it together.

SOR a tiny bit of progress

The last time I posted:

Now:

I have it all rolled up but you can see the page break at 4 and 5 and the TINY little bit I've stitched in the upper left hand corner. That's just about 200 stitches!  So not a lot, I felt like I wanted to post today since I haven't for so long. I just feel like I didn't have enough progress to share. 
I thought maybe my stitchy bug was gonna play nice again, as between the first 2 days of July I stitched for almost 5 hours, but then the third day came and I only got half an hour in, and yesterday I never pulled anything out. Which, it being a holiday, is not surprising, but still...
I hope all my American readers had a great Independence Day weekend. Ours was a lot of fun!  
I will be back in 5 days to share progress on my ornaments. 
Thank you all for reading! See yah soon!

Autumn peace more progress!

Last time I posted:

Now:

So! I've finished half of page 4, now onto the bottom half! I really wanted to finish this page this month, but that's not gonna happen, I'm sure. But oh well! My stitchy bug just has been so elusive lately. So... Anyway.
But I have decided to work in a rotation once again. Stitching on Autumn Peace, Sea of Roses, and ornaments. Autumn Peace will get an hour everyday. SOR will get 4 hours a week and ornies 3 hours a week. That way they are all moving forward. I hate thinking that any of them are just sitting, and not getting any progress on them at all while I'm finishing a whole page of a project before moving on. That also means there will be more to see on my blog, not just the same piece over and over for weeks. Change of scenery so to speak!  
Also! Is it just me, or is that brown splotch actually starting to look like trees? Like the dark branches, and areas of sunlight peaking through the leaves? I'm starting to see it, but maybe it's just me! 
Hope you have a great week! Thank you for stopping by!

Slow, but steady...Autumn Peace Progress

Last time I shared on Saturday:

Today:

I was able to finish column 4, and move onto five, so there's some progress. I hate that you can't tell what this picture even is! Just a big brown blob. 
I'm still enjoying this, my stitchy bug is still hit or miss, but I try to push through and stitch even on the days I really don't feel like it. I really would like to finish this page by the end of the month. We will see about that.
Hope you're all having a lovely week! Until next time- Happy stitching!
