The end of the sixth red leaf is where I estimate I should be by May 22nd.....it is about 1/3 of the row.
I'm not going to make it. I am not disappointed with myself. I can see when I look back at my last post how far I have actually made it. I am enjoying this section, plotting out the black outline and then filling in the red in the long arm cross. I thought I was quite generous when I created the schedule for completion. Apparently I didn't factor in gardening......I have June and July to finish this row and maybe I can make up for lost time. I looked ahead and the next section will definitely not take the two months allotted so I am thinking that could be catch up time.
I have a class in June at Salty Yarns in OCMD and I am taking Corsica River along to stitch on when I am there. I bet I can make good progress from those porch rockers. I am looking forward to 4 days of nothing but fellow stitchers, salt air, good meals at some of my favorite places and a Betsy Morgan class! Corsica River is getting sidelined after tonight until I get my pre-work done!
I am also teaching a Christmas in July class for EGA and have been ordering supplies.....I have almost everything I need except for the back ordered items that are promised soon. I can't give it away just yet but I can say that there are two possible versions and I want to stitch one of each before the class. I will plan to devote an upcoming weekend making up my 25 kits and pre-stitching a couple of samples.
My take along project is also moving slow. If progress could happen just by the number of weeks I carry this to work every day and don't touch it, I would have been done months ago. Just like that weight loss idea I had when the kiddos were young and I was ferrying them everywhere and I thought there should be a way to loss weight while driving the car....I never did figure that trick out!
One of my guilds, DVHSG, is having a Lauren Sauer class in September that I would like to take......but not if this is not stitched. So there is my goal for this piece. Should I be so bold as to say finished as well by September! Let's not get carried away.
It's all good. To everything there is a season and for me, this is the season of the yard......
Thanks for stopping by.......keep on stitching.
