WIP Wednesday 04/22/2015


This week, I added almost 200 stitches to Santa and the Mouse. Considering how busy the week was and everything else I accomplished, I am pleased with that amount. (My bar graph on the right jumped up from 61% to 62% complete!)

You may click on any photo for a larger image.

Above shows the section I am currently working on. Below shows how that section looked last week.

I hope you have all had a wonderful week! Thank you so much for stopping by.

Last Week's Goals:
1. Complete 250 x-stitches on the HAED Santa & the Mouse chart (which is no longer available, but it is a part of this chart at Heaven and Earth Designs.) 

2. Work on a block requested in exchange for my son's senior pictures. I finished this seam and am off to the next!

3. 
Write at least 13,860 words this week, for a total of 32,206 words for Camp NaNoWriMo. (That is an average of 1,980 words per day. If I am closer to 35,000, all the better!) Nope. Not a word. This week was all about catching up on my stitching obligations, spending time with family members, and learning to waltz with my 18-year-old for an upcoming Senior-Parent Waltz at his high school's May Day Celebration. (It's the school's talent show. My son and his girlfriend will be two of the MCs - fun times!)


4. Complete and mail out the snowball for Kathy S. Done! I will share a picture after she receives it. Here is a tiny sneak peek.

5. Complete and mail out Kathy's CQI UTS RR block. Done! If you missed the post, it is here.


This Week's Goals:
1. Complete 250 x-stitches on the HAED Santa & the Mouse chart (which is no longer available, but it is a part of this chart at Heaven and Earth Designs.) 
2. Complete the block requested in exchange for my son's senior pictures.
3. 
Get as close to 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo as possible.
4. Share pictures of Sandra T.'s CQI UTS RR blocks and create a plan for the one I plan to embellish.
5. Share 1 Xmas Item a Month post on April 25th. (It is already typed up and ready to go!)
6. Link up with the Monday Stitchery Link Party at Super Mom No Cape on April 27th. (If you missed out on what was shared on Monday, April 20th, you may check it out here!)
7. Link up with Stop Pinning and Make Something at A Focused Journey.

Congratulations on getting some items ticked off your to do list! I find that as fast as I get some ticked off mine a few more are tagged on to the bottom of the list.... do you find that too? Have a lovely week! :) x

You managed to get quite a few things checked off your list. And certainly came close to meeting your goal for stitches on your Santa and Mouse.

I've never done the NaNoWriMo... I don't think I could write the over 1600 words a day every day for 30 days that's needed to make the 50,000 words. I admire any one who even attempts it. I'll be cheering you on from the sidelines!

Oh and I'm looking forward to seeing what you link up on Monday!

Your Santa is looking almost complete! You were busy, and looks like the next week will be, too, but on such wonderful things.

Learning to waltz with your son - not too many young men would be willing to do that, so I would say you have a good one!
