A finish and progress

Here it is the start of another week and hopefully I will be able to continue to move things forward. It is going to be a busy week so that means that I am going to have to see what I can find those little bits of time to work on the projects that are calling me.

At least the heat and humidity has come down a bit so that means that we might be able to focus on things a little easier now or at least that is what I hope. Last week was a slow week given how hot and humid it was. Now to see if we can get more things done this week.

Star Touched Meadows Stitch Along - January - here is the cross stitch project that I have been working on. I was looking at this piece at the beginning of the week and thought that if I could just work on it for a while I might get it finished.

The good news is after spending some time once the heat and humidity broke, I was able to add the rest of the colours into this piece and it is now finished. It did take me longer than I had hoped to get this piece finished but it is now done. 

I haven't decided what project that I am going to work on next, but I do know that I need to figure that out. There are a lot of projects wanting some attention so maybe this coming week I will pull out something that I haven't worked on for a while and put in some stitches on it. I would like to see if I can move something along quickly because it would be nice to have another finish, but I am not certain when a finish is going to happen.

Lamina Wrap - here is the knitting project that has been getting some attention and I am happy with the progress that I have been able to make on it. I am now at the point that I am going to be deciding if I am going to just do 23 lace sections or will I do all 25 sections. This is a decision that I will be making very soon because I am now on the 21st lace section, and the wrap is getting pretty long. 

This project is a lot of fun to work on and I enjoy seeing it come to life so will see what it really looks like once it is finished, and I can block it. I do know that I have been enjoying working on this project and am looking forward to working on my next project. The Lamina Wrap is a nice pattern to work on as it is easy to follow and something that I can pick up and put down based on how much time I have to work on the piece.

Hopefully this wrap will have at least all the knitting completed this week as I already have the next project figured out that I would like to start at the beginning of July.

Other projects - I haven't been working on any other projects because I have been focusing on trying to move these projects closer to a finish. This coming week I do have another project that I would like to try and move forward a bit so will see how that goes. Maybe now that the cross stitch focus for this month is finished I can work on something else for a little while.

I hope everyone can find that bit of time to do something that makes you happy each day. It doesn't have to be anything big but at least spending a little bit of time doing something that helps you regain your focus is important. Being able to relax is what is important and having that bit of time does help.

This week I am not certain what I will be working on other than the Lamina Wrap but I hope to have some progress to show you next week. Have a good week and hope your weather is cooperating.
