Making Progress

This is the Michael Powell design I'm currently working on. I guess I'm almost halfway done with it. It's amazing how fast a piece stitches up when you consistently work on it. I actually started this last year but like so many of my projects, it got set aside when something new caught my eye. Then about 3 weeks ago, when I had my revelation about only stitching one project at a time, I pulled it back out and decided to finish it. So most of it has been stitched in just the last 3 weeks. I've been stitching at night while watching TV. It helps keep me awake. I have a tendency to fall asleep when I'm watching a program. That's when DVR comes in real handy. Don't know how many programs where I missed the end before we got the DVR. Anyway I digress. It drives David nuts when I fall alseep like that so if I stitch while I'm watching, I can stay awake. I haven't even begun to think about the backstitching involved. I do like backstitching but his designs use more of a long stitch technique. Just need to get some black #8 perle cotton before I start it. My goal is to have this done by the end of May. We're going to Minneapolis on Thursday for Chris & Annette's graduation from grad school and we won't have a car. I expect to have lots of time in the evenings to stitch.

Wow, you are making great progress! I have to stitch to stay awake at night too! I stop, I drop! I'm forever asking hubby what happened at the end of a movie because I missed it!
Can't wait to see your progress!
