Well, it took me most of the week to get my stitching mojo back, so there is not a lot to show for this week. I barely touched Cinderella Castle. It went from this:
To this for a total of 2.47 hrs (which is kind of deplorable for what little I got done):
I finally decided that the lack of mojo was because of Cinderella Castle and I needed to work on a project that motivates me (which means a HAED), so back to Alice and the B's it was HAED's just flow better than other projects for some reason. I left off here:
and finished here tonight:
I didn't quite get done with her face, but I did get close. If I have a good stitching week this upcoming week, then I should get done with Rapunzel and start back on Aurora. That's what is so great about this project, there is a princess in practically every page of this chart...no boring background stitching like Maleficent. I love seeing their faces appear with every stitch.
I really want to finish some of my WIPs before I start a new project, but I've got a couple of HAEDs that are really calling to me right now. I try to think logically about it because, the more WIPs I have, the longer it takes to finish a project, but there are so many great ones in my stash, I just can't help but want to stitch them all. When I first started reading stitch blogs, I was shocked by how many stitchers have a hoard of WIPS...at the time I was only doing one at a time, but now, I totally get it! If I'm having a bad day, stitching on a boring project is more painful than not stitching at all. Last week pretty much reiterated that and, once I switched projects, the week got better. That may mean that some of my WIPs might not ever get finished, but I'm starting to be OK with that. I've learned so much from other bloggers and I'm starting to feel like I could actually become a good stitcher one day, all thanks to you guys!
