Well, I am finally seeing some real progress on this one. As just recently I have switched up my rotation to better suit me (again....lol)
My old rotation I stitched two hours a day: I worked an hour on Autumn Peace everyday, as it is my focus piece, and then I alternated the other hour between Ornaments (3 days a week) and Day Surrendering to Night (4 days a week) However, so many times, I would end up just working on one project and never switch over to the other one, or I wouldn't find a full 2 hours a day or with my stitch bug being what it's been the first of the year, who knows? For whatever reason, I just never seemed to get as much as I wanted to and I was getting very frustrated.
So, now I still work on the 2 projects a day, but instead of an hourly amount, I have a stitch amount. Except for the Ornaments, they still just get an hour on their 3 days. The other two full coverage pieces, I try to get a full 10x10 block done everyday that I work on them. Which can sometimes take a while, depending on the amount of confetti or whatnot. Sometimes it doesn't take much time at all, it just depends on if there are large chunks of one color, or a lot of confetti. But I have been doing so much better with keeping up on my goals this way. I think being able to SEE the amount put in every day is really helping me be motivated, as apposed to saying "Ok, I've got an hour, lets see how much I can get done", and then sometimes feeling very frustrated if I run into a large amount of confetti and not seeing as much progress as I'd like.
This time I was able to finish over 3 columns worth of stitching, and I've got less than 2 columns left and I'll have finished this page, AND! the entire top row of pages (p.1-5) So, I'm very excited about that!! So, I am really hoping to be onto the next row of pages by the time I post again, next month! Wish me luck!
Sorry for the rambling! Thank you so much for reading, and until next time....happy stitching!
