Oh look! More Brown

Hi all!

Well, I've had kind of a stressful week thanks in part to my car (5 days in the shop! omg!) and work, which is getting hectic. This is actually our busiest month at work, though it won't actually calm down 'til September. It's just data entry, but there's a lot of it, and I wouldn't be surprised if I have to start working overtime soon. Love the money, but I'd rather be stitching. ;)

Despite all that, I actually had a surprisingly productive week. I spent most of my time on Favorite Bird, which has become known as "the Brown One" in my household, but I've actually got two more pages done:
It is really hard to tell, but there is now a second table leg toward the top. I actually didn't see it until I was editing the photo, but there it is: a bit of leg, with its shadow streaking behind it, and a reflection mirrored on the floor. At first I thought it was just a random blob of light, but now I am happy to see a bit more detail emerge. So, that's another wip that's met its goal this year, but I may stitch one more page on this sometime before the year is over...

I also managed a few more leaves on my tigers, but not nearly as many as I'd hoped:

And I have completed my first column on Luna's second row:
It looks really odd at the moment, but I just love the variegation in this column. Those brighter blues just sparkle amidst the grays and slate blues, then there's that bit of darker blue toward the bottom... It's just pretty! :) Hopefully I can get a bit more progress on her this week.

Guess that's all I've got for you this week. Until next time. Keep stitching!


  1. Even though work costantly gets in the way of stitching you've done a nice progress on all your works in progress!

  2. Beautiful stitching =) Congratulations on beating another goal =) The colors on Luna are amazing!
