Still going!

Still going, and starting to believe that I can do it!

This is what it looked like before I started doing some serious stitching, on about the 4th of January - so three weeks ago -

I've got one week to finish all of it now (eek!) ... I'm hoping to get a couple of hours this afternoon, if work is quiet, a couple of hours tonight. Fridays aren't usually a good stitching day for me, and Saturday I'm going out for the bride-to-be's hen party ... but hopefully I'll get the bottom part finished by the end of Sunday ... then have Mon-Thurs next week to get the left column finished off and the writing done *phew* I can't wait to have it done! I've got a couple of RR's I need to work on ... then I'll probably stitch whatever I want for a few days before throwing myself into a 2006 rotation :)

I've finally reached the point where I am really ready for the kids to go back to school ... it's taken me about three days to do some work that should take me a morning ... the constant interruptions, whines, arguing etc are driving me bonkers. Of course, give me a couple of weeks after they're back and I'll be whinging about the early mornings, lunches and rushing around!

Off to do grocery shopping now ... one of many thrills in my life ;)

You're motoring along on this piece - way to go!! I can appreciate what you mean about having the kids around - having Mum here's been the same a little bit, just in that it throws your routine out. I'm so far behind in reading blogs, it's not funny! I've got my fingers crossed you meet your deadline this week :))

You've done so much so quickly. Way to go! Really impressive. :)

And Anne's comment is the same as mine - with the in-laws here it's almost the same as having kids! I can sympathise!

You can do it...and it looks fantastic! I have this one in my stash and you're making me want to pull it out and start!

KarenV said...

Wow! Your progress is fabulous! I don't think I could have made this sort of progress in the same time. Good luck with getting it finished it time :)

Kath said...

Beavering along... and of course you will do it.

Looks really pretty 'in person' everyone.

BTW, your Mirabilia fairy looks great framed. You have lovely friends to do that for you!
