Here's where I'm starting....I hope to have all of the cross stitching done by the end of the month


4 days later

Six days later, and I'm a little discouraged.  I haven't been able to work on it much

Ten days later, and it sure doesn't feel like I did much.  95% of the project is "mapped", though...I'm going down my color list of floss and starting to fill in.  42 colors on the list, and I have 11 of them completely done.  Think I can do 31 more colors in the next 10 days to reach my goal???  I'm going to try!



I REALLY wanted to be done with the main cross stitching before June 1st so that I had the month of June to finish the metallic threads, backstitching, and beadwork, but I have been pretty occupied with life work for the past 2 days and today.  : (

She's looking lovely. I know how it is with life getting in the way. I've had that happen a time or two. I got lucky this weekend though and got a little sewing done.

I've gotten quite a bit more done today.

This was the other day...

And this was today.....

And this is tonight. I'm working on the bear. I had finished most of the doll before this got put away the last time. Once I finish the bear and doll on the bench I plan on putting a small calendar under the clock and that will be it for motifs on the 'wall' of the room.

I still have a 'tea table' and a 'lamb pull toy' to put down in the toe area. I also need to put the 'baseboard' along the 'wall' and the 'wallpaper' on the 'wall' before I will be done. I also have a lot of the dreaded back stitching to do as well. If I keep going at the speed I'm going I hope to have it finished (except for putting the stocking together) by the middle of June. I need to go get some fabric for lining and backing the stocking.

Three more days in the month to try to finish the cross stitching before starting on metallic threads and beads...it'll be a miracle if I can do it.

Well, I'm ending the month not quite as far as I wanted to be with the progress, but it's getting closer:
