Given my history on this project, I’m now really enjoying stitching it and it’s beginning to take shape.
As you know I restarted this project a while ago and I have to say, that even though I do spend a lot of time changing thread colours, I’m really enjoying stitching it now.
As you’ll know yourselves, you get into a kind of rhythm when you are stitching and this now seems to be building quite quickly, I think the knowledge that I won’t have to go back and do any back stitch also helps!
I’m off school this week (yippee) and although I’m nursing a cough and cold and still have to do household chores (am keeping those to a minimum after all “I’m not well…”), I’m spending as much time as I can on this, as it would be lovely to get onto the next page of the chart before I go back to work on Monday.
My new lighting arrangements are also helping, coupled with the main living room light and an up-lighter which also has a movable spot light on it – between them all I can beat the duller Autumn daylight and keep stitching into the evening. Though if you look at the house from outside, the living room seems to glow like something from a bad Halloween film!
Anyway, here is my progress to date.
The problem I can see looming now, is that of Christmas on the horizon and I still have a few tags to stitch from last year’s magazine freebie and their latest magazine is out with some lovely purple and silver metallic threads, along with a free chart booklet. May have to consider how much sewing I can get done in my 30 mins lunch break!
Enjoy your stitching, will post another update soon.
