It has been soooooooo long since we have had a good, solid and true IHSW! Even though I felt I had lost my stitchy bug, I managed to get a little bit done over the weekend and am pretty pleased.
Thanks to Jo and Joyce for getting this up and running again!
So this weekend's project was my Fire and Ember SAL and I'm STILL on page D2. A little back story on the page names...I have a grid. I'm nerdy and geeky and a grid had to happen. Oh but wait! It gets worse!
I'm not going to bother stitching top left to right and go row by row or page by page..NO. I'm going A1, B1, A2, C1, A3, D1, A4 and now am struggling to stitch D2.
And there's more! Each page also has a corresponding month! A1 was July 2016. Page D2 is actually February 2017. Technically speaking (I mean let's get real, it is ALL technical here) I am 12 months behind!
To continue with the madness, I will stitch all of the outside pages first and then hit the middle....I mean...if I EVER get done with D2.
This is my first medium/large full coverage piece and it is pure joy to stitch...when I actually stitch on it. It isn't the pattern that is the issue. It's how I overwhelmed myself with projects and had to sit back and just calm down. I do this all of the time...normal behavior, but things end up getting done in the end.
The before and after shots of D2. Maybe today will see the end of D2 and the start of A5? Who knows!
Until next time.....KEEP ON STITCHIN'!
