Rhiannon's Progression

Had two days off of stitchy goodness, woohoo! On Sundays, I try to have all of the housework completed (laundry, dishes, vacuuming, dusting, tidying up) and all errands run by no later than Monday, which is my Friday. I do this so that I can spend my two precious days off doing whatever it is I want, which is generally stitching. I laid on the couch Tuesday watching the entire Matrix dvd collection and stitching. Wednesday was my usual Wednesday trip to Stitcher's Paradise. Had a blast there getting caught up with The Girls and stitching until my fingers and eyes started to hurt. :)

At any rate, here is what I managed to get completed in two days:

Design: All Hallow's Eve

Designer: Heaven and Earth Designs for Jessica Galbreath

Fabric 18 count aida in Antique White

Fibers: DMC

I've got a fair amount done, considering how intensive the stitching is. I am going to have to find some other less taxing projects to do. I think I need a break from this one already. When I got home last night from Stitcher's Paradise I had quite the raging headache, so I didn't stitch any at all last night, which was a bummer. I am really enjoying this piece and I am having loads of fun with it, however, it is very intensive and it's sort of like running a marathon. Proper pacing procedures must be followed! LOL!

At any rate, I need to bolt for the door. Need to finish getting ready for work. Have a good day all! :)
