Late progress! Oops

Last time I posted:


So I've got a pretty good start in on page 4. That red petal you see at the top of the page took FOREVER! Confetti hell!! Lol, so I kept switching between the confetti and the larger areas of skin, so I was able to get quite a bit done. I'm proud of my progress. 
This one will be set aside now until February. As today we are driving to Florida (13.5 hours each way) to visit family. And I will be taking my ornaments with me to work on. Smalls work better for me when traveling. 
And when I get back it will be the New year and I'll start my new(ish) rotation for the year. Which will start out with "Day surrendering to Night". Oh how I've missed working on that one! 
I hope everyone had a beautiful Christmas. I did take a couple days off posting here to enjoy the holiday with my family. We had a wonderful couple of days. My daughter was properly spoiled! 
As was I!  My next update will be a year end wrap up and a 2016 plans kind of post. So anyway, I gotta go pack my suitcase and get ready to head out here soon! 
Thank you for reading! Happy New year!!!

Woo hoo!

Page 2 is FINISHED!!! 
Now I'm going to move down and start page 4. I'm just going to keep working on this piece throughout the month. 
The next time it comes up in my rotation is in mid February, but that's around my daughters birthday and my mom will be here for 2 weeks so I'm not anticipating a whole lot of stitching time then, so thought I'd keep working on it now, to make up for then. (If that makes sense) 
Hope you have a great weekend!

Sea of Roses progress!

Last time I posted:

So I've decided I'm going to do all 4 of the full pages of this together (1,2,4,5) so when I'm done with this page (p 2) I will move down and work on 4. Then do 5, then work the remaining 5 partial pages (3.6,7,8,&9) together, because all the combined stitches of those 5 pages doesn't even equal half the number of stitches in one of the full pages. In fact page 9 only has 32 stitches in it!  So that's my ideas going forth with this one, and if I'm able to keep with the schedule I've set out with my rotation that I've worked out for next year I should finish this one mid to late September, which I'm super excited about! 
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're having a great holiday season!

Sea of Roses Progress!

It's slow, but I don't mind too much. I just want to be done with this page by the end of the month/year. So I'm taking it slow, also because of all the Holiday stuff things are, of course, busy. So if it takes me the entire month to finish this, That's fine with me! 
So! Is anyone else out there looking through their projects and making plans and lists and goals for next year? I know I am!! But I'll share those later on, closer to the end of the month! 
I hope you're all enjoying a fun weekend, maybe getting some of that Christmas crazy out of the way a little early. I know I am, so I can sit back drink egg nog lattes and just relax and enjoy the holiday, without having to run around frantically at the last minute. I'm almost done! I'm hoping to have it all done by the 10th. Wish me luck! 
And as always, thankyou so much for stopping by!

I just now put the last stitch in and ironed it!!! I love it! I think it came out really good!

Stitched on 18 count Oatmeal Aida, 2 over one. Started 4/21/13 finished 12/2/15. designed by Roger Reinardy. Pattern was in the Stitchery Magazine. I'm sorry, I don't know which issue.

Thank you for stopping by!
