Hello again fellow stitchers and readers :)
First up today is my SFS for January.
Total Spent: $0
Total Earned: $0
I won't have any earned for part 1 of SFS because my project was started on 1/1 and it has to be over 6 months old but that's okay I'm not planning on spending any either although the 50% HAED has been calling my name with Butterfly Wood. I think I'll save it for now and buy it during the next sale if I can reach my stitching goals by then.
The good news is that the family left so I was able to get in some stitching time. I got hit with a major cold as well. I'm still on the mend but I'm at about 95% with just a lingering cough. It was one of those short but intense colds that knocked me on my butt. If you remember from my last post my brother-in-law stayed with us. It wasn't as bad as I thought until his sister came and he refused to go with us in the parks since she was there. He just stayed by himself in their hotel room. He also was only pretending to shower which only made things worse. My diet also took a nosedive while they were in town between eating out and being sick. I'm starting it up again too.
But onto stitching news! I got quite a bit done on Paradise. I'm still nowhere near my goal but at least I'm making progress. I'm stitching each page in groups of 20 columns of which there are 3 on each page. I think after I get to the bottom of the design (next page) I'll try doing it in columns of 30 so I'm stitching half a page at a time. We'll see. I don't like how I can see the indents between my columns. A lot of my progress came on the day I "called out" of work and today.
I also started a new project which won't take me long. I'm doing melted crayon art for my walls. It will be 4 panels done on canvas when it's finished.
I also tried my hand at highlighting my hair. The technique worked but the blonde didn't take well and I'm not bleaching my hair without a professional but I think it looks okay.
Until next time,
Stay Classy Stitchers!
