Stitching update

Finally, that horrible holiday is over!! I'm still reeling from all the social interaction, but it's done. And thankfully, it will be my last Christmas participation. My days of putting myself in excruciatingly uncomfortable situations for the sake of others is at an end. If I don't want to do something, I'm not gonna do it New Years Resolution #1. But more on resolutions later.

It's been a while since I did a stitch update, but mainly because I have been stitching like mad! I have actually finished another row of my little Highland girl and only have two full more rows to go!

Here's the day after my last update on her:

And here's where I stopped on Sunday:

Here is where I ended last night:

And here she is in her entirety:

When I actually work on her, it just flies by. It will be really hard for me to do fractional stitches ever again after working on a HAED. I think that's why I have such difficulty switching back to the other two projects I have going...fractionals and outlining. I'd much rather do a million tiny X's on 28ct than one half-stitch or even look at a three-quarter stitch!

Her little gray fingers creep me out just a bit, but I try to think of it as she has fingerless gray gloves on (but that cover her little thumbs).

She looks gorgeous, and you've done absolutely loads! I'm quite envious of your massive amount of progress!
I know what you mean about all the social interactions, I find Christmas exhausting, this year's been quite by usual standards but it's still been such hard work!

She looks awesome! You have made an enormous amount of progress. And even I find Christmas crazy and a whole lot overwhelming.
