I am so behind on blog reading this month that I totally missed the introduction posts, but better late than never, I suppose. I do hope that things settle down enough for me to keep up with everyone's posts and progress.
I'm Susan and live in central Virginia, about halfway between Richmond and Fredericksburg, with The Hubs and three cats. I work in Washington DC for the US Department of Agriculture assisting rural communities develop or improve their water, sewer or solid waste disposal systems. Prior to moving to Virginia, I lived in New Hampshire for 21 years, before New Hampshire I lived all over as an Army Brat and a then a military spouse. I'll be 54 in a couple of months and have a 31 year old son that lives in Vermont. I have done some sort of needlework for as long as I can remember. I found counted cross stitch in 1984 and, as they say, the rest is history.
I tend towards large projects and do not stitch as fast as I think I do, hence I have way too many WIPs. My largest piece is also my New Stitchy Start piece, Shakespearean Fantasy. It isn't the most technically difficult piece I have stitched, but it is by far the largest.
Here is where I was at last month's post:
And here is where I am today:
I was going to say that I hadn't gotten too much done, but looking at the before and after and considering the last month, I am very pleased with my progress.
