Oh man, but I fell off the blogging wagon. It was like once the Holidays were over I just needed a break.....from life, it appears! Haha! for some reason, I'm finding it really hard to get motivated this year. I feel like a huge slump! So, I never got around to a 2017 wrap up post, or a 2018 goals post.....And here it is with only a week left of January....I may still get to them, but for now, I just want to update my progress.
Here is what Day Surrendering to Night looks like....although, I think I have a bit more work in on it, as you can see I took that photo almost 10 days ago! Ooops. Like I said.....so unmotivated. Sorry. I am just glad I am picking this one up now on a fairly regular basis, as it always seemed to slip by the wayside. I started this page on Sept. 11, and I had a projected goal to finish this page by Jan. 3rd....And I still have more than half left to go for a finish....yeah....VERY behind!! Oh well. Life happens, right?
Hope the first of the year has been treating you well! Hopefully you're getting lots of stitch time in, and making some headway on some of those goals you set for the year!
I am really pleased with the amount of progress I saw on this one this last month! It really does stitch up quite fast once I pick it up!
Well, I guess this is where I say goodbye to 2017, and Hello to 2018!! I hope all my readers had a lovely year, and was able to reach any goals, stitching or otherwise that you may have set for the year. I will be posting a 2017 year end wrap up soon! So.....I guess I'll see yah again next year!! Thank you again for another great year of blogging. for without my readers this blogging thing would not be as fun!All your comments and views really mean so much! And I thank you all from the bottom of my heart!
As you can see....I got my page finish on page 8 of this one!! I finished it on November 21st, and then continued onto page 9:
And here's where I got to on this one. I am STILL LOVING this one SO much! I love the colors, and it's fun, although, I have to admit this last month I have had a bit of frustration with the amount of confetti in this one, it really slows down progress. I'm just glad I really enjoy it so much!
Hope you had a beautiful Christmas!! (If you celebrate) I pre post all my blogs, so as you can see I'm posting this on the 10th, so Christmas hasn't happened for me yet, but when this goes up I will have and I'm sure it is gonna be a great day!!
I was able to get a bit more done on this piece, although I am sadly WAY behind my schedule I had set out for this one! I started this page on Sept. 11, and this little bit is all I've gotten done in all that time.(the bottom portion on the left) I really need to pull this out and get some serious work in on it, or I won't get it done for along time yet. the portion I stitched was only about 1200 stitches give or take in 3 months time! I should be MUCH closer to a finish on this page! Oh well. Life....it gets in the way of my stitching sometimes....
Hope you are all getting lots of stitching in! Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!
Ok! So, I started this project on Sept. 22. I RE-started it on Oct. 29th. Remember how I said this was a plethora of newness for me? 25 count fabric, 2 over 1 tent stitch, working on q-snaps/hoop? Wellllll....apparently THIS old dog? Cannot learn new tricks!
I HATED it, at first! but I pressed on....I was just getting in the groove, working on it at a good clip, when I found a ginormous counting error....and that was when we had to say our goodbyes, and go our separate ways!
However, I really want to work on this project, and it is a project for one of the SAL's in the Full Coverage fanatics group on FB, so, I started it again....And I'm enjoying it a little bit better now...I'm still having a hard time trying to figure out how to slip this one into my rotation, but as you can see....I have done a little work on it, so...there's hope!
Thank you for stopping by, and Joyful stitching to you all!
This is my primary focus piece, because I am stitching it as a gift for my mom, so I tend to pick it up almost daily, while the rest of my projects languish in the background crying for my attention. Not only is it a gift for my mom, but I truly DO love working on this one! So, that also probably plays a part in the fact that I have no trouble working on it for the amount that I do every month! I have less than a quarter left of this page, then it's onto the next one!! I hope to have a finish on this page by the next time I post, but we shall see how that goes, as we are sliding into the end of the year, and holiday time is upon us. So, busy, busy times! But, I will still see a good chunk of work on it, no less, I'm sure!
I hope all my American readers enjoy Thanksgiving on Thursday, and that we can all find something to be Thankful for. Enjoy eating until your seams groan in protest, and hopefully enjoy lots of good time with family and loved ones!
Thank you again, for stopping by, and as always, Joyful stitching!!
