Week 8/4 progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  I had an okay stitching week.

The second half of the challenge I did 1418 stitches.  Total stitches for the 12 days - 2813.

I'm very close to getting 2 more page finishes.

I finished the rose and cover.

Alice in Wonderland by DoNa Stitch.  I did 574 stitches for a five day counting challenge.

New plans.  Kate (no blog) and I will be working/starting 6 stained glass charts from AvroraCS.  We will be working on a total of 11.  She has an app on her phone called the Super Wheel.  She listed the designs and spins the wheel.  What ever design comes up for the day we can do one strand, one hour, a hundred stitches or whatever we want.  I'm looking forward to this one.  We will start Dec. 1 and continue next year.

Second thought,  I'm going to be 70 (oh my gosh) next year,  I have a few ideas.  Work on 70 different projects (other than my normal ones) in the year,  A combo of finishes, starts and UFO's,  I figure I can work on each one for 5 days.  Anybody want to join me??

Thanks for stopping by.    Linda

Don't think I want to follow you turning 70 just yet, it's close enough for me, just not ready for it. I like your ideas though. Instead of working on 60 some projects for 5-6 days each, I think I might work on 5-6 projects for 60+ days each :)

Love you stain glass designs.

Great progress; they really start to come to life as each section of colour is gradually added.
70? Wow! I was going to suggest you trying for 70 finishes but that would take time away from all of your focus stained glass pieces. So working on 70 projects, with some finishes, sounds like a good compromise. :)

I love all your progress. Your SAL of stained glass charts sounds like fun and a way to make lots of progress.

I'm right behind you on the number of birthdays (I turn 69 in January.) I bet I could work on 69 different projects throughout the year; I'll have to think about it.

I panicked there for a minute when you said DoNa Alice, but then I realized that I have that one...I thought I was missing one! I have been out of the stitching game way too long!

Shelly said...

Hmm, I never thought to take my age and work on a combination of new starts and WIPs in that amount. Sounds kind of fun! I just might join you. I still have leftover kitted up projects from your Bday SAL. I'll see how things are at the end of December. In the meantime, your WIPs look good and I'm intrigued with these stained glass charts!

Cars is really coming along! 70 projects sounds like a good plan! Can't wait to see what you decide.

Fantastic work this week, love that rose on Beauty & the Beast.

I'll have a think on the 70 theme! I hope to put in 70 days on my Chatelaine and twice 70 on my Discworld, so maybe that will count?

Carol said...

Love seeing your progress photos, Linda! And 70! How exciting :) I'm only six years behind you... If anyone can do 70 projects it's you!

More colours in Cars, yay! The rose looks lovely, who's going to be first, Belle or Beast?
Oh wow, 70 projects?! Um, I think I'll be cheering you on from the sidelines!

Lol I don't think I've done 70 projects in a year... or two, or three, but maybe four or five! I'll definitely be cheering you on.
