Sooooo....... I had a fantabulous weekend! Was able to stitch on Friday evening and most of Sunday. Saturday was spent as a "date day" with my hubby....he took me shopping and to dinner, then we spent the evening with family. Doesn't get much better than that! (Oh, Saturday I did do a little frogging, but even that couldn't ruin the great time I had!)
And to make my weekend even sweeter....I found out that my name was drawn by Ewa's "helpful and handsome" boyfriend as one of the winners for a home-made surprise! (check out her blog and you'll get the humor there!) I can't wait to find out what she's making!
Now......Here's my IHSW Update........
Before the weekend, this is what Wings looked like:
And after the weekend, here's my progress:
I ALMOST completed page 1, which is about 3800 stitches!
Keep in mind though, I took out the top 40 rows to fit on my fabric .....and.... there were only THREE floss color changes so far!! What a nice change to work on a HAED with no confetti! (but I can't speak too soon....page 2 begins some confetti!). I could never have completed this many stitches otherwise!
What I loved most about starting this piece was that Katie at Jeremiah's Mom also started a new HAED and we agreed to start together! Check out her blog and see her beautiful progress! I love the little bit of green colors that are starting to show!
Now for my "rotation inquiry"....for those stitchers out there that rotate your projects/pieces....do you have a set plan or way you go about it?
Do you have a timeline set, for example, I'll work on piece A for one week, then piece B the next? or do you have set goals, for example, I'll finish page 1 of piece A then page 4 of piece B?
Why do I ask? I can't figure out how to work mine! I've always been a "one at a time" stitcher...working one piece to its end before starting a new one. But since entering blog-world, I noticed so many people that worked mulitple projects at a time, so I got hooked. Now I find myself with at least 5 started WIPs and 4 that I'm just itching to begin. ( I think my addiction is with starting/kitting them! )
I've just started feeling lost...not overwhelmed ...just lost. I feel like there is one piece I should focus on until it's done, with maybe a secondary I work on as well....then as I finish a piece, I pick another focus project? I know, with the majority of my projects being HAEDs, I won't finish but maybe one this year (hopefully the one that is a gift!)...so should I just drop everything else and work on that one?
HELP! I need advice! hehehehehe :)
Anyhow, I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and you're enjoying the Spring weather! The New Moon is this week, which brings with it the March TUSAL! Can't wait to see everyone's ORTs!
