IHSW over and no dice!

So, I tried really hard to meet my goal, but my stupid head wouldn't cooperate. I came home with a migraine Friday night, so Friday was screwed. I ended up sleeping through most of Saturday, but when I did finally get up, I did get a lot accomplished:

But today was a bit of a relapse, and I couldn't focus enough on the project to work on it, plus I got the news that I have to work a double shift tomorrow, so today got cut short anyway, so this is as far as I made it:

I will say that the ton of same color stuff wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. I actually couldn't wait to get back to the confetti! I may have been stitching for years, but this is my first 18ct and it feels like I'm stitching a bloody poster!!

But I did make a decision about what project to do next. I'm gonna give multi-managing a go. I am definitely gonna start my HAED, but anytime in the past when I haven't done a Disney project, I end up putting the non-Dis aside for years at a time. Disney stitches are the only ones I work on constantly until they are finished, so I figured if I work on a Disney at the same time, it might satiate my Disney demon enough to keep the ball rolling.

But I couldn't just leave it at two, oh no, not me! As I was digging through the stash, I ran across a project that I actually bought in high school, the only one of the old stash I haven't given away and I've decided to work on that one as well! Hopefully I'll get pics up in the next couple of days of my choices. I must have lost my friggin mind!!

Hope everyone else had a good IHSW, maybe your progress was better than mine!!

Hope your feeling better now :) And you shouldn't be sad about your progress you done tons anyway and it's looking gorgeous, you should be happy for it ;) and I wonder what your HAED will be any hints on that one?

WOW!! Amazing work :D

Every stitch stitched gets you closer to being finished!! Can't wait to see which HAED design you chose!!

Love your Disney project! Hope you're feeling better.

Ewa said...

That is a huge amount done!!! I hope you're feeling better. I had a migraine last week as well and all I wanted was to crawl into bed and not move, let alone stitch!

Kate said...

I have enjoyed watching this grow and it does so very quickly! Have you stitched Pluto before? I would love to find a good chart of him.

Doh on the migraine. Sorry you had to deal with that. You still got a lot done... Mickey's almost there. :D

Thanks guys! My head gets in the way of a lot of things lately.

Kate - I'm a Donald freak and can't say I've ever done Pluto...but there is another pic that I've got way on the back-burner of Mickey, Goofy, Donald and Pluto as pirates...very Pirates of the Caribbean themed.
