I don't think I'm gonna make it!

Last time I posted:


It's still super slow going! I really do not see a finish on this page in 5 days!! 
I've had a bit of a stitching slump as of late. I have to MAKE myself pick it up and work on it. So I haven't been putting as much time in as I'd like and should in order to reach my goal. 
So now I'm just not sure if I want to continue on and just try to finish this page as soon as possible or to move on in my rotation. 
I'm not sure... Something to ponder on! 

Well happy October! Thank you for reading!

Stuck in confettiville

Last time:


So.... The title says it all! Again it's kind of slow going as I keep hitting patches of intense confetti....I love the result and detail of all that confetti, but getting through it is just tedious! I keep having to remind myself that the end result will be well worth it.
However! This confetti is really slowing me down and I don't know that I'll be able to make my projected day of completion on this page.  I've only got 10 days, and I really don't see that happening. So we shall see!! 

Thank you for reading and I hope you all have a great weekend!

Until next time: happy stitching!

(Wow! What a craptastic photo! Sorry!)


This go around I was able to finish another column and get a good start on the next one. (3 of 7) this section seems to have a lot less confetti. 
Sorry again for yet ANOTHER craptastic photo... It's dreary and looking like rain here this evening so the lighting isn't too good! 
Hope you all had a great weekend and have a wonderful week! And I'll see yah again in 5 days! Thank you for reading!

Sea of Roses update

Last time I posted:


I lost my stitchy mojo a few days between my last post and today, so it's been slow, but I was able to finish Row 2, and start row 3. But then changed my mind and have now decided to work in columns instead of rows, so I'm working my way down column 1. 

Hope you are all having a great week! See yah next time!

Sea of Roses page 2 Start

Well I got a pretty good start on page 2. That's the whole top row, and the first about 300 stitches in the second row. So there are a lot of huge chunks of the same colors in this area so it's stitching up pretty quickly! That is ALOT of pink! There are about 10 different shades in that area. I can't wait to get down a bit lower where there are more of the darker shades. 
I am really enjoying this! I can't believe this is 6 days of stitching. It's stitching up SO fast!
Here it is in its entirety so far:
It's coming along, I just hope I can keep up at this speed. 

Oh! And I have a new toy! Some of you who are my Facebook friends have probably already seen this, but I'm super excited, so want to share again:

I finally got an SUV!! It's time! We've always just had 2 door cars, and now Alyssa is getting so big and we are traveling so much it just seemed like it was time. I'm still getting used to driving such a big car!  I'm used to driving a Ford Mustang so it's quite a difference in size!! But it's fun and VERY comfortable! 
So that's my exciting news. 
I hope you're all having a great weekend and getting lots of stitching done, and I'll see yah again in about 5 days! 
Thank you for reading!
