The plan worked!! I managed to get done all I needed to do this morning, and the boys did their work, which meant after dinner we were free to enjoy doing the things we wanted to do. It is so nice to get to the end of the day and see such positive progress. It is now possible to "see" what I am stitching. This is the veranda of the house and the beginnings of the bridge. Most of the bridge will be on the right hand side which is on the other pattern sheet.
I am really enjoying this cross stitch and all the colour changes ensures that I am not getting bored. I would love to be able to complete the stitching by the end of the month.
I do have some other commitments for this month, and whilst I was stitching, I was making a mental list of all I needed and wanted to do this month. I will list them here and see how much I can achieve this month
1-Thomas Kinkade SAL
2-2 ATC swaps
3-2 fabric postcards to make and send
4-TAST catch up blocks to piece and embroider-2 in total
6-sew buttons on cardigan
and to keep up with the poppy cross stitch and Lakeland tapestry. That should keep me out of mischief.
