Progress and an almost finished

Erasmus - March 18th
This last week I was able to find some time to work on three different cross-stitch projects and that made me feel pretty good.

Erasmus - March 23rd
The first project was Erasmus as I knew that it wasn't going to take me much longer to get the remainder of the actual stitching done.  This was my focus at the beginning of the week when I had the time to stitch.  Wednesday evening I was able to finish off the stitching and now just have a bit of back-stitching to do on the piece before it is done.

I am happy with how it turned out so now to just finish off the back-stitch and that will be another project completed.

Growf - March 15th
After Erasmus was finished I decided it was time to work on Growf for a little bit so that was the next project that I worked on.  This is the other project that I want done soon so it is now going to be basically my focus until it is done.  I am hoping that it will work up quickly but will have to see how things really go on it.

Of course, I really didn't have a lot of time to work on it as I only worked on it after finishing Erasmus for a couple of evenings.  The reason for this was I had another project that I was going to focus on when I was able to do some stitching on Good Friday.
Growf - March 23rd

The final project that got some attention this week was Bluenose Dime and that was my focus on Good Friday. Considering we had the ice storm the evening before it was nice to be able to just stay at home and do something.

I was pretty determined to see how much I would be able to get accomplished in one day.  I am now working with the silk threads so they are taking a bit more focus.  The silk does give a nice effect on the piece but there are still the issues of the thread fraying, knots appearing and the needle unthreading easily.
Bluenose Dime - Feb 26th

The stitching on Bluenose Dime felt really good as I haven't been working on this project as my focus as been on getting Erasmus and Growf completed.

Bluenose Dime - March 25th
Bluenose Dime will now have to wait until I have finished Growf but I hope that wont take me too long to complete.

Now it is time for me to get some work done as there are a lot of things asking for my attention.  It felt good taking an entire day to myself on Friday but now to get the work done that was re-organized to have that day.

This week I am hoping to find a bit of time to stitch but will have to see what actually happens.  Until next week, enjoy your time and remember, we all need to take time for ourselves at different points.
