The sewing method is going so much better for my stitching speed! Look at how many stitches I did yesterday!
934 stitches! I can’t even believe it. For those not familiar with stitching, I use an app called Pattern Keeper and I stitch either a stitch or a row of stitches or a group of stitches after I’m done stitching them. The app marks them as having been stitched and tells me . . well . . you can see what it tells me. I stitched 934 stitches. I’ve stitched a total of 8,805 since starting this project. It thinks there’s 21,090 stitches but it’s counting every square – even blank squares and, based on the presumed total number of stitches, I’m 41.75% done. This app was started for those doing full coverage projects where EVERY square is stitched but I’m thankful to have it, even with the little things that aren’t quite right for my chart.
Mostly I stitched yesterday. I did cook and clean up the kitchen, take the dog out a number of times, go outside to help decide where to plant peonies and elderberries . . that may be all I did besides stitch.
Before I started doing the sewing method, I was happy to get 200 stitches done per day. I’m really happy I gave the sewing method another try.
Again, a late night photo. The colors really are kinda drab but . . I do like it.
The rows on the hill are getting shorter so today I hope to get the row done that says “change the world”. That’s 14 letters. Yesterday’s row had 17 letters. If I can get the next row done today, the row for tomorrow only has 11 letters and that will be the end of the letters. Then I’ll really only have about three days worth of work left.
There’s a chance . . a slim chance . . I could have this finished by the end of October!
