I have finally started to make some progress on my piece this weekend. I will be the first to admit that I haven't gotten as far as I would like but at least I have finally started stitching something.
Apologies. The colours aren't great in this picture but as I took it this evening I had to use a flash which always seems to distort 'real' colours.
I knew that I had a busy week last week, but after 2 late nights at work, a trip to the movies, my Saturday workshop and walking in the rain yesterday I didn't realise just how little stitching time I would have last week. Even though I didn't set an overly ambitious to do list I still didn't get as far as I would have liked.
- Finish Orange Postcards - Yipee managed to do this one
- Finish BQL January Bag - Oops total failure I didn't even manage to pick this one up
- Make a start on TIF doll - Start made but no where the sort of start I had hoped for
- Add another kitty to the cross stitch - Another tick in the check column.
So I just realised that with my busy week I have totally forgotten to share the cross stitch progress. Here is the overall shot, so I admit again I probably spent a little more time on this than I wanted to but it's so easy to pick up in the evenings. Not only did I add the extra kitty but also a couple of hearts here and there.Here is a close up of the new kitty, sorry about the bad pic got a lot of glare from the flash. I'm so glad that I am asking DH to choose each new edition. I really didn't want to stitch this one as basically it's just a mirror image of one of the first kitties to be complete. Part of the fun of doing these is watching each one emerge and I had already seen this one done, anyway having DH choose has made me get on with it and now it's over and done and I can move on to the next.
Even though I am not managing to achieve everything on my To Do list each week it is really helping me to concentrate on the things that I want to work on so I will continue to work this way for a while. I have another busy week this week including a 17 hour day at work tomorrow, ick! So I am going to restrict my list to 2 things this week.
- Finish BQL January Bag
- Make good progress on my TIF doll
Tune in same time next week to see if I finally manage to complete a weekly to do list, lol!
