Wow! I can’t believe it’s the end of July. I thought we were in June! It’s been a while since my last post and I have a perfectly good explanation for it. I started a new job and I’ve been in training. Barely any time for stitching but I’ve been pushing myself to get some more finished pieces this year to reach my goal of 17. I’m up to 10 as of today.
This month I had two FO and one partial FO:
I’m up to date on the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery yearly SAL. Can’t wait to see August.
Now, since I’m so busy at work, my rotation has to be adjusted (yet again). My work schedule is a little crazy so my stitchy time will be changed to (perhaps) 1 hour in the morning during the week. Weekends, after my chores and errands, I’l have more time to stitch. Therefore, I think I might do the following:
I’ll assign 1 project a week just so that I can see progress on it. I’ll take a picture at the start of the week and at the end of said week. My Christmas ornaments will be stitched as scheduled (1 per month) and I’ll stitch them during my lunch hour. Therefore the plan for August is the following:
Week of 7/31-8/6: Happily Ever After: August by Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery
Week of 8/7-8/13: Postcard from the World by Cloudsfactory
Week of 8/14-8/20: First Snow by The Drawn Thread
Week of 8/21-8/27: Keep Calm & Cross Stitch by Michaela Bermudez-Garcia
Week of 8/28-9/3: Twilight Angel by Dimensions
I am getting to a finish on another Christmas ornament for this month (I will be finishing right after I’m done writing this update) so, hopefully, I’ll have another finish to show you for this month. Next Christmas ornament is Candy Cane Basket by MCG Textiles.
Next month I am foreseeing two more finishes and another partial finish with the Happily Ever After: August.
‘Til next time!
