I delayed this post till Monday morning since I wanted my photo to include every bit of stitching done on Sunday, such as it was. I wasn't feeling all that well and spent most of the day in cat naps, waking for brief periods to fix a meal, stitch a bit, check the computer, start to watch a DVD ... which last always put me right back to sleep again.
Every now and then I go on what can only be called a stitching jag: I stitch on just one project. This past week was one of those times. Tracery Dragons was very nearly my total focus. Somehow, I got in my head that I ought to finish page 2 of the Tracery Dragons before the end of the month. I guess I wanted to make up for all the frogging I have been doing. Well, it was an unreasonable goal and I have about 1/3 of page 2 of the chart left to stitch. Nevertheless, I'll set myself another unreasonable goal for August and see how close I get to achieving it: finish page 1 and 2 of the cross-stitching charts and pages 1-3 of the backstitching charts. If I manage that, I'll have several pieces to take to the framers in early September: Teresa Wentzler's Autumn Faerie [a Christmas gift for my daughter] and Tracery Dragons, Dragon Dreams' The Ice Dragon's Kingdom and Blackbird Design's A Bird in Hand. Though I may make the last up as a small pillow instead.
