I didn't get as much done on the Save the Stitches as I wanted to yesterday, but only because I went to get some groceries and stopped by JoAnn Fabrics to use my 15% off total purchase coupon. Not sure I can get what's left done by tomorrow, but should be able to get it done on Monday.
I have found another stitching project that I want to start. You can check out the Quilty Stitches Sampler A Long using the link in the sidebar. A new block will be released every 2 weeks, and she's on block 3 right now. I'm not supposed to start something else new until I get 2 more stitching project done, so I dug around in my in progress drawer last night to find a couple of things that I might get finished fairly quickly. Earlier in the month, I had pulled out the tatted handkerchief, but set it aside when I was able to start the Save the Stitches piece, so I think that will be one of the items I try to finish up. The other is most probably going to be the perforated paper ornaments. Neither of these is going to be finished in a day or two, so I just might have to cheat a bit and start the sampler before they are done so I don't get too far behind.
No knitting done last night. I did complete one round of crochet on the kitchen rag rug after Paul helped me prep the rest of the fabric strips. That's about the extent I can get done in one day on that project. It's getting heavy and unwieldy, and crocheting fabric strips is hard work. There are nearly 200 stitches in a round now and my arm can only manage one round. I will get a photo of my progress for tomorrow's post, hopefully with a kitty or dog nearby to help with scale. Tonight I will do some knitting. Need to work on Paul's convertible mittens, and I'm going to make a second pair of Blomekrans.
Since I didn't pull out any knitting last night, I decided to work on my HAED piece a bit. Here it is with just over 200 stitches done. I need to resign myself to the fact that this is going to take me at least 2 years to complete. I am working on too many other things right now to actually get 400 stitches done per day, so I won't have this to hang in my dining room next year like I wanted.
To give you a perspective ..... below is a photo that shows almost all of the area that needs to be stitched. I think I missed a row or column or 2. More than 130,000 stitches in this piece!
Yesterday afternoon I did get the Biscuit Cowl blocked. I love her! The drape with the silk yarn is fabulous. She is just warm enough to keep the chill off my neck around the house, but isn't so heavy that I can't comfortably wear her in late spring or early fall. I'm wearing her now, doubled like in the second photo.
And of course, there is a puff for today!
