Progress Photo Friday!

Ok, so for most of my readers, it is still Thursday so you get a Friday update early, however for me, here in Japan, it is already bright and early Friday Morning...thus my title!


I have been busily trying to keep on track with my "rotation" which so far I think I have done pretty well this week. And I am going to share photos! If you want to watch my progress on my goals, you can do so under the heading "November Goals" on my sidebar, I will try to keep that updated as I stitch... I'm a little behind on Howling, but that's alright, I can catch up and I have not done my Friday stitching yet, so that progress is missing too.
Here is Howling at the Moon. I am really enjoying this one...all those blues and violets...it is really starting to take shape. This one I work on 1 hour Mon-Fri. so it gets 5 hours of work on it a week. This is my focus piece for the month,

Here is the Abby. This one I have been working on FOREVER it feels like. But it is starting to look pretty good also. I work on this one one hour on Mon, Weds, and Fri. so it gets 3 hours a week.




And here is my last (but not least) photo for the week, this is Coming Home for the Holidays,(more affectionately known as CH4TH) and I work on this one only two hours a week (one hour on Tues, and Thurs.) This is the project that hubby is also working on with me. All that foliage and the large tree to the right? Thats all his work...the house is mine. Looking at this one, the photo isn't that great, but you can see a little work there. If you want to see the difference in progress just go to the sidebar and click on the label for it, and you can see how it is shaping up.


Not much else going on here. I am now on medication for my blood pressure and I had to go have blood drawn this week so they could check out my cholesterol levels and make sure my thyroid function is normal. So, all day Tuesday I had a headache because you have to fast for 12 hours before those tests, and ugh, it was awful...but now I don't have to go to the doctor until the 30th so that is good. I just have to keep up with my workouts and trying to watch my diet. This is so hard for me, because all my life so far I've never had to watch my diet, I could sorta eat whatever i wanted and my metabolism would just melt it away, and now I have to work on it...this getting old stuff just stinks!!! I turn 32 next week! Ugh!

Ok, enough rambling. Oh! I also wanted to say Hello and a great big thank you to my new followers!!! and also, as usual, thank you to all who have left me lovely comments!!! They are all lovely and much welcomed! I need to start hitting blogs with more regularity, as I have been so sidetracked lately with Facebook...That is about to change though. So I will be hitting your blogs much more regularly now! So, I'll see you in your comment box! =)

Have a great weekend!

Love Howling at the Moon, its going to look amazing when its finished. Keep up the good work. I'm really into wolves at the moment just started In Harmony and just brought Pollyanna Pickering's Company of Wolves.

I'm 35, what would you call me then? :) Please take care of yourself, the diet is only difficult until you get used to it. Soon it will be natural.

Your projects all look lovely.

Lana - You've been doing a lot of stitching lately! All three are looing fantastic! How fun that you and your husband are woring on one together. Glad to hear you are well and hope the new diet goes well and gets your blood pressure under control. As a life long yo-yo dieter I feel for you - it's no fun but totally worth it. :-) Meredith

Lovely progress on your stitching!

Good luck with the health stuff. Yes, this getting older stuff is for the birds! :P

Your stitching looks great. I love especially the Howling at the moon.

Myra said...

How great is it that your hubby is helping you with your stitching?! These are all looking good and I admire your discipline. I don't think a rotation would work for me - I have to have some quick gratification along the way.

The Abby and Home for the Holidays look just lovely! Can't wait to see how these progress. I'm very sorry to hear about your health issues. I can definitely relate!

Great stitching! My mom is also working on Abby but she left that little shadow in the window out cause she said it looks creepy having someone in the window, lol. I'll have to see if I can snap a pic of it when i go home for xmas. I covered up the addresses in my MA, thanks for the reminder. :)
