Stitch Maynia - week 1

Lots of stitching this week!

This is where I started on May 1st:

And this is where I am now:

Stitchy Stats:
18 hours,  20 minutes
1795 stitches
*223 stitches short of my goal this week.

Even though I didn't reach 2018 stitches this week, I'm very happy with it. I only put in 75 stitches on Friday and if I had done my usual 300-500 hundred,  I would have been right on track.

Let week 2 begin!

Stitch Maynia?

Yesterday I was telling my husband that May first starts Stitch Maynia. I explained when it started and what stitchers did that first year and how each year it has changed just a little bit. He asked what I was going to do.

What? I hadn't even considered doing anything.  I am not sure how I'm going to feel, we are preparing for a move and I don't have enough stash to start 18 new things AND "it starts tomorrow!"

He said that if we wait for everything to be perfect,  we'd never do anything. He also said that since stitchers were adapting it to fit what they needed, then I could too.

So his idea is since it's 2018, and I'm only stitching on one major project, for me to stitch 2018 stitches every week in May on my Dragon.

That's a lot of stitches every week and will be an impressive amount of stitches at the end of May! Challenge accepted.

I'm not on Facebook or YouTube or Instagram, so I'll just be posting my progress here.

See you in a week with my first update.

♡Happy Xs♡

April update

April hasn't seen as much stitching time as I had hoped. My recovery from surgery is taking a lot longer than I had planned.

But I did get about half of page two done.

End of March:

April 30th:

April's Stitchy Stats:
Total hours: 32 hr, 35 min.
Stitches: 3,170

My goal for May is to finish page 2 and make good progress on page three. (I'd love to complete page 3, but we will see how it goes.)

I also did just a little bit of work on the hummingbirds.

End of March:

End of April:

Mid-month check in: April

Here's my progress so far in April. I was hoping to be at the half way point on page two by now. I wasn't planning on the recovery from my surgery to take two weeks, so I have some catching up to do if I'm going to get page 2 done this month.

Year in Pixels #1

This is the start of my Year in Pixels project in which I'm stitching a 5x5 block of each color I use this year from each of my projects.

I'm hoping it comes out about 11x14 with room at the bottom to stitch the year.

This first set of colors is from my Laundry basket in February.
