Sunday Stitching and February TUSAL

Let's get this month's TUSAL over with first (and a day early, no less). For some reason, I was feeling a bit "ducky" this month:
Looks like a meerkat we all know and love is peeking around the corner!

I stuck to Maleficent like you guys suggested and, it took a ton of work, but I managed to finish the third row (finally). I left off here last week:
And here is the row finish at 388.07 hrs:
And here are all three rows together:
For all the hell that this stupid dithering is giving me, I do have to admit that it does look really good. I wish I could say the same for Suteki (but that's a post for another blog at another time). My goal is to finish the fourth row of Maleficent by the end of the year, but I might just get into the fifth if I keep up at this pace.

I debated on working on the wording for Rainy Wedding next week, but right now, at least until my Disney trip is over with, I think I'll put it off a while. I decided to complete the rotation and go back to #1: Snow White.

Just to help matters along, I got a needle minder just for her:
Since she's not the typical Snow White, I didn't want to get a Snow needle minder, so I went with the next obvious choice. I think I'm getting a bit addicted to these things! Let's just hope the plans of the week don't interfere too much with my stitching progress.

More amazing progress Keiley. Have you ever timed yourself to see how many stitches you do a minute. I'm lucky to get about two and half.

Wow she looks amazing! Totally worth the dithering efforts!

Maleficent looks magnificent!
I found a wonderful little silhouette of her on Etsy which I might just buy for the Bad Fairy theme on the Hallowe'en blog later this year.
