Yesterday I got a lot of stitching done. I was up early. We had cereal for breakfast. We had leftovers for dinner. About all I did was stitch, print coloring pages for Addie and help her re-arrange some things in her room.
Here’s where I left off Saturday night.
And here’s where I left off last night:
What I stitched yesterday:
- The white snowflakes (?) under the cherries
- The E
- The gold thing to the right of the E and the three gold things above the cup, as well as the gold thing above the D
- The B
- The D
- The three packages
- The heart
- The white line on the cup and the top three of the white decorations on the cup.
I’m not sure what is wrong but the pdf on PatternKeeper didn’t load correctly. All I have is about the left third of the chart, top to bottom. I thought about deleting it all, re-loading it and setting it all up again to see if that changes anything but it’s pretty easy to work this one from the paper chart. Since I bought the pdf, as well as the paper chart provided by the designer, I printed the pdf and am able to write on it and highlight what I’ve stitched.
It won’t be easy to keep up with the number of stitches I make each day. It doesn’t matter enough to me to count them so . . if they’re stitched, they’re stitched but I won’t know how many I’m stitching.
Today I hope to get to the bottom of page 1. There are three printed pages across and three printed pages top to bottom – kinda like a nine patch so once I’ve finished page 1, I’m 1/9th of the way done. In my head, I’m thinking . . if I get 1/9th of the way done in 4 days, I could possibly finish this in a month but . . I know I can’t but it does give me hope that I can get it finished by Christmas. I think I’m going to make my goal of getting one page done per month since I have a lot scheduled. That means I could have it done by the end of September – plenty of time to frame it and have it hanging on the wall by Christmas.
Having said that, since I start a new project on January 1, I really think I can get at least two pages done and maybe into the third page before January 1. Wishful thinking, right?
