Work in Progress Wednesday 06/03/2015

So... I might be a little bit excited about being so close to finishing Santa and the Mouse. Just maybe. I added 1,157 stitches this week, which completed columns 5 and 6 of the chart and part of column 7.

Above is how it looked last week. At that time, I was on track to finish the chart on September 29th. Now, I should finish by September 1st. (If I keep exceeding my 250 stitches per week goal, it may be much sooner!)



Last week, the chart was 75% complete when I shared my WIPW post. Then, I worked on it more and finished the 5th column, as seen above.


I was not feeling well on Sunday, so I had more down time than anticipated and completed the 6th column of stitching on this chart.



Last night, I put in some more time. The chart is now 82% complete. Page 3 is nearly done (with less than 2 columns) and page 4 is the smallest of them all (with 7 columns.) The end is definitely in sight!


Above, you may see my progress within the past month.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

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.) Done! Completed over 1,100 x-stitches this week. See photos above.

Sorry you weren't feeling well, but at least you have something to show for it. You have made amazing progress on Santa this week.

XS takes a lot of time, but you really made a leap this time! The stitchery party is growing! I had nothing to report this week, but I will have for Monday. Yay!
