HAED Rotation

Sunday, December 3, 2023


 So glad to be back. Lots has been going on. The best thing is that on Nov 7 I became a grandma for the first time. My son and dil had a little boy and named him Theo James. He was a month early and had a couple of issues but he is doing great and hopefully will be going home sometime this month. He is magic.

That being said I have a new focus project and so far I haven't been able to put it down. I am stitching it for Theo. I had started it back in 2020 and then never touched it again. When he was born it seemed to be the perfect project to stitch for him. I picked it up again on Nov 9 and have been working on it since. According to my log book I did 6,285 stitches in Nov. I use Pattern Keeper and it is a game changer. Hoping to put a lot more stitches in this month.

Thanks for letting me rejoin Avis.

 I hope everyone has had a good 3 weeks of stitching. Mine was pretty good. I did make good progress on The Universe in a Jar. Hopefully I will continue at the same rate. Here is where it was the last time.

And here is where it is now. I did finish the area I was working on.

I'll probably move to the right and work on that section. Depends on how sick of 939 I get LOL.

 Wow 3 weeks seems to fly by. It is getting hot here this week so lots of stitching time. I don't like heat so I stay in the AC as much as possible.

The Universe in a Jar didn't get as much time as I hoped. I have an 8 project rotation that I am working on for July. They are all full coverage and are for important people in my life. My kids, their significant others, 1 for me and 2 memorial pieces. Universe is for my youngest daughter so it is prominent in the rotation. I try to do at least 100+ stitches on each project and I stitch on a different one every day. If I make my goal and still feel like stitching Universe gets some stitches so it's worked on more than just its day in the rotation.

I didn't meet my goal for this update. 939 is boring. LOL. Here is where you saw it last.

Here is where it is now. I will win with the 939. It will just take awhile. I am close to finishing the column.

 I actually have good progress this time. Pattern Keeper is a game changers. Also our weather has been wet and dreary so that is good stitching weather.

Here is where it was last time you saw it. I have entered the land of 939. LOTS of 939 LOL. 

Here is where it is now.

I hope to have the left hand column done by the next update.

 I really don't have much to show this time. I missed last time because I forgot and hadn't been stitching.

This time I have done about 10 stitches so nothing to look at.

The big news with this post is:

I finally finished adding The Universe in a Jar to Pattern Keeper. That was a job.
According to PK I am at 133,394/229,950 (58.01%).
I decided to finish page 1. It is amazing that I have stitched this much of the chart and still have an unbelievable 25,584 stitches of 939 left to do while I only have 124 stitches of 310 left to do.

Hopefully there will be real progress for the next post.

 Hello everyone. Hope this finds all well and stitching away.

I have made good progress on The Universe in a Jar. Last time it was here.

Since then I have had another page finish and am continuing up the column. I am slowing down on this one. I will continue to put time in but right now I am at about 100 stitches a day. 

Here is where I am as of yesterday

 Today is the end of my Monogamous March. I am pleased and surprised that I only stitched on one project for the entire month. And I plan on doing it again in April. It will be All One April.

I stitched everyday and only had 3 days that I was under 100 stitches. 31 days--6,117 stitches. Photos are March 1, today and where I am starting tomorrow. Thank you so much for all of the support. Sometimes I feel you all must be getting bored seeing so many posts from me but for me it is very motivating to have progress to show you each day.
I will be working on this in my All One April event on FB.
