2010 Weekend Progress Report # 2

Since this has been a very busy week at work characterized by working straight through my lunch hours and gulping down a container of soup at my desk, there hasn't been any lunchtime stitching nor any progress on my stitching bag projects. The Handblessing Autumn Lace bookmark is just as last pictured.

But the weekend was another story. I managed to put in a about six hours on TW's Autumn Faerie during Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon. As is usual for me, I expected to be a little further along at the end of the weekend than I am ... I had hoped to fill in the design areas between the square and circular borders as well as completing the circular border itself. Even so, I have made substantial progress and am encouraged by the way the design is appearing on the cloth. I know most people like to stitch a page at a time of multi-page designs but I prefer to follow a design element and stitch it till complete no matter how much page-shuffling results. So, I have been working with all four pages of the design and find that keeping it in a soft vinyl binder on a book stand facilitates the process.

Well today, it is off to the post office as soon as it opens to purchase four flat rate boxes so I can send off the doll making stash to those that requested it at the same time I mail out my regular monthly giveaway.

I have seen that chart and I know how much work is involved--all those color changes and blendings take so much time. You are doing a wonderful job on it!

Oh wow, the faerie is coming along so nicely. Certainly a BAP and a TW BAP at that! I don't know that I will ever have the nerve to do a TW,lol.
