Happy World Cross Stitch Day and welcome to another update on my current cross-stitching. This week I have been stitching on Animal Almanac, the 2020 SAL from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery and Midnight Owl from Mill Hill.
At the beginning of August, I gave myself the challenge of getting caught up with this stitch along before Midnight Way begins on August 17. Truly, I didn’t know if that was possible, but I was willing to give it a try. As it turns out, it was not possible. So my new plan is to finish the May and June blocks before Monday, then come back to this piece after I begin Midnight Way, hopefully finishing the July and August blocks by the end of the month. One of our furbabies, Duke, is actually on restricted mobility right now, and that requires me to pretty much stay with him the majority of the day. He is being a real good trooper during this and it gives me an excuse to ignore the housework and sit next to him stitching. So hopefully I will succeed in my plans.
I am back to my routine of bedtime stitching. Something about working on a small piece before bed just helps me wind down from the day. This week the piece that I’ve been working on at bedtime has been Midnight Owl. This is the Mill Hill kit that my hubby bought me as a surprise last October with a gift card that he got from work. If you recall he challenged me to have it completed by this October. I’m definitely going to win that challenge. Thankfully the pattern is a lot of large blocks of color so it is stitching up rather quickly. I’ll probably continue to work on this one at bedtime at least until I am more than halfway through the stitching.
I hope this finds you well and enjoying life.
Thanks for checking in & happy stitching!
