January IHSW results

The first International Hermit and Stitch Weekend is close enough to over that I think it's safe to stop for the night.

I got stuck at work late on Friday, so I didn't get much done that night. Here is where I started on Friday:


And made it here:


I ended up sleeping until late afternoon on Saturday (takes me forever to get to sleep, but once I'm there, it takes a military action to get me up), so not much progress then:


Today was better because I got up early afternoon, but even after an almost full day of stitching, still not much to show for it:


There was a lot of gap fill-in work, so it makes it look like I didn't get a lot done, but I worked non-stop the entire waking weekend, seemingly changing colors every five minutes. I've got to stop stitching so much because I'm letting too many things go by the wayside...I think I've forgotten how to do laundry. I've also got to crack down and start exercising as well as working on Disney pics. My OCD is solely stitch-focused right now and it's starting to get out of hand. Maybe if I make it through row three this week, knowing that the mattress levels are coming up next, it will slow me down...the mattress levels are going to be hideously boring!
