Whew!

New Years was nuts!  I had to work until 2:30 am New Years Eve and then I had to work on New Years Day.  I started on the first but wanted to wait until I had some progress to show and had good light.  This is about 3,300 stitches in.

I'm working it in columns of 20.  The grid is in 25 and it's 32 ct linen.  I messed up a bit on the grid since it's my first time using pen whereas before I used thread so I was working between the lines but it's okay since I really just needed to know where to start.  This is the last column of the page now and I'm aiming for a page a week.  This is the largest page but only by a single column or two.  There are 3 rows of 14 pages, the last row are all half pages.  Love watching everyone's progress!

  2. Wow! You are speeding right along! What gorgeous colors. No stitching for me so far today. I worked on my crochet this morning and then spent a few hours in the hospital having a procedure done on my shoulder. It was pretty painful and I'm very sore so right now I'm in bed resting my arm. Have to work tonight so I'm not sure I will get anything done on my big one. But I always take a small one to work with me LOL. Keep up the good progress and you will be done before summer LOL.

    1. Lol I don't know about that. It helps that I've had the last 3 days off so not sure how quickly I will get through the rest. My goal is October. Glad to hear your procedure wasn't too bad and you're already out. Keep resting it and give it time to heal.

  3. One page a week? That's a lot of stitching, but it sure looks like you can do it from your speed so fa. Lovely colors!
