Web of Life update

I don't have a before picture to share but I last worked on this and posted on April 30. I'm now working on the 2nd page (out of 4)
I worked on the brown toned feather to the far right and started back stitching the area of the peace pipe directly to the right of the sun catcher. 
Here's a close up:

Not much work being done on it because we are out of town. The Hubs had a conference for work and so we tagged along. 
But I'm hoping to finish this page by Sept. 5th. Can you believe we are less than a week away from September?! This year is flying!!!

Well off to get some more stitching in. Hope you're all having a great week! See yah in 5 days!!

DS2N- some stats...

There are 44,522 stitches in this project. 
This page was 6,279 stitches
Altogether so far I've stitched 18,753 stitches
I have 25,769 stitches to go!

DS2N page #1 complete!

5 days ago:


I was able to finish this page by my goal of Aug 20th, so I'm really happy about that! I LOVE that you can see her whole face now!!! I had to include a little bit of the page underneath to get the whole face so here's JUST page 1:
And here is what the piece looks like in its entirety so far:

So I guess the next time I pull this out, I should be able to stitch in the whole face/head of the "day" Angel. So that'll be cool!  I am so in love with this one, and would love to keep working on her, but I am gonna be a good girl and switch to the next project in my Rotation which will be " Web of Life". And I'm guessing to get my next page finish on it won't take very long, a week? Two tops, then it's back to Sea of Roses (HAED), so looking forward to that! 
I hope you're all having a wonderful week, filled with stitches. Thank you for stopping by, and I'll see yah next time!

DS2N Progress

Last time I showed this:

And today, 5 days later:

I REALLY wanted to finish column 5, but I failed! I have less than 100 stitches left, but yesterday I just got too busy, wasn't able to finish it. That's actually why I didn't post yesterday, is because I kept thinking that I'd find some time to finish up that column and then I'd post, but I was never able to find the time, and before I knew it I was going to bed, and I hadn't finished it and hadn't posted. 
And again, where you see my needle parked is where the edge of this page is. I'm getting closer! 

Thank you for reading!

I have a small finish!

I was able to sit and get this little guy done up between the last time I posted (2days ago) and this morning. 

Which makes me very happy 1) because who doesn't love having a finish, no matter how small? And 2) it means that I can put these little things away and pull out Day Surrendering to Night. Which I absolutely am in love with and am so excited to be able to work on again. 

So, my goal for DS2N is to finish page 1 by August 20, before moving onto Web of Life, the next project in my rotation. Wish me luck! And I will see you again on the 5th for an update on DS2N.

Joyful stitching to you all!

Bye bye July!

Happy August Every one! Oh man, was July a crazy crazy month.... But lots of fun! 
So in the midst of all the celebrating and traveling and fun with the fam time, I was able to get a little stitching in. I have 1 finish and 2 WIPs to share, so let's get on with it, shall we? 
First off I finished this guy (although I JUST realized, I still need to add his French knotted eyes) 
I think he came out pretty cute! That poor teddy bear in his pack looks very sad, though. Lol
Next up is Santa # 7, and here's the progress I was able to make on him:
I need quite a bit of work on him still, but there are large chunks of the same color in this one, so seems to be sailing along at s good clip. 
Next is DS2N progress. And I'm trying not to feel too disappointed with the progress on this one. But there is tons of confetti in this one and I obviously was not able to stitch as much as I normally would in a months time. So here it is:
I was able to get 4 full columns completely done and started the fifth one. Where you see my needle parked is the far right edge of that page. I am really still enjoying this one, despite the ridiculous amount of confetti in it. But! The result of all that confetti is phenomenal! So I'll just keep on plugging away at it. 

So that's all I was able to get done stitchy wise while I was on my blogging hiatus. I did have an awesome month, busy, but awesome! And now we are into August, and all I have to say about that is Roll on Fall! I am just through with this southern heat and humidity! 

Anyway, thank you all for spending a small portion of your day with me. I hope you all have a great weekend!
