|Monarch Butterfly - October 10|
The one project that got some attention was the Monarch Butterfly and I am loving how it is starting to look. I was comparing it to the original picture and it is slowly starting to come to life. I can't wait to see the piece finished just to be able to put the cross-stitch and the picture side by side and see how they look.

Besides working on the cross-stitch I continued to work on the mauve granny square baby afghan and it is coming along pretty well. Most of the work on the baby afghan was this weekend when I felt like I just wanted something simple to work on. The afghan is coming along quickly as I went from around 9 inches to around 24 inches this weekend. I hope to be able to make a bit more progress on this afghan during this week but will see how things really good.
I was also able to get some knitting done on the shawl that I am working on. The shawl went from 19 inches to 30 inches this week so I am slowly starting to see some progress on it. I want to get this shawl done by the beginning of December so it means that I need to focus on it for a little bit to see how much I can get done. The shawl is suppose to measure around 72 inches when done so will see how quickly I can get there. Last week I did focus on knitting it a couple of evenings so that is why it advanced as much as it did.
Once the shawl is completed there are a couple other projects that will get my attention but until then I don't want to distract myself from getting both the Monarch Butterfly and the shawl completed.
This week there are a lot of things going on for work so I am not sure how much time I will be finding to craft. I hope that at least on the weekend that I will be able to find some time to craft but will see how things go.
