Yay Page Finish!

It seemed to take forever but I'm happy to report I got another page finish and we're once again going to the top of the pattern!  I finished these 3 pages in a month...actually an exact month lol if I can keep this pace up it means I'll finish in August.  But if my calculations are correct with my stitch counts I won't finish until October...obviously something's off lol.  But this month included my 1,000 stitches done on my challenge Haed which I'll be doing again in April so I'm hoping I can finish 4 pages by the end of April which gives me a week of wiggle room since my birthday is in the beginning of April.

I currently have 18 pages left and have finished 24 which is just under 60% of the piece.  But the last 3 pages are less than half pages and the entire bottom row are like 2/3 pages.  

Okay enough rambling onto pics!

Last time:


I was able to get a better closeup this time :)

I'm not thrilled with how the oven is looking.  I like how you could see the waves in the left hand side but we'll see how it turns out.  And the last line ends in the next set of pages!

See you all next time!

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner...and Gifted Gorgeousness :)

Hey everyone welcome to GG and the winner of the giveaway!  And the winner is...drumroll please...

Katie!  Lol you won again my number generator must like you!  Email me which chart you'd like :). Thanks everyone for playing!

As for GG I'm still plugging away on Paradise.  Last time I had one page done in the new section and about 3/4 of another:

And now I'm almost done with the bottom page:

Sorry it's a little fuzzy I took several and none of them turned out.  The dark green gave me nightmares lol I kept getting knots and it took forever!  It's hard to see but the right has more done but I'm finally getting into some blues so they're harder to distinguish from the fabric.  

On the home front were still waiting to hear back about hubby's job and doing some house/apartment hunting.  It's also giving me nightmares.  It's so crowded here that it's pretty much impossible finding a place.  Everything is getting snatched up hours after being posted.  And hubby is driving me nuts by being picky which means we're probably going to have to find just an ok place at the last second just like in every other move.  Which drives me nuts lol.  I may have to find a place on my own and just tell him when we're moving.

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll post again probably tomorrow when I finish the page :). Off to do more stitching!
