Here is where I’m at with Mama’s Bukid. When I finish this set of columns, I will be finished with this project. I’m so excited I can hardly stand it. But I’m putting it away. I can almost taste the finish that’s how close I am. I’ve been working on this project for a week and it’s not my favorite project. If I force myself to keep working on it, I will not pick it up at all. I know myself. So, I will work on “A Stitch in Time” this week and next week… I will stitch a bit more on this project and maybe, I’ll have a finish. There’s a lot of full coverage as I get to the bottom of these columns and as a result, I’m not certain I’ll be able to finish in a week. It may take another 2 weeks of stitching. Either way, I’m okay with taking a break on this and moving onto one of my favorite stitchy projects.
Pretty exciting that you are almost done! You’ve made incredible progress on it, so it’s very okay to take a break and do something else for a change of pace.
This will be so worth the effort in the end. But I’m with you and piecefulwendy — don’t work on it when it feels like a chore. What you do for pleasure shouldn’t feel that way. I’m nearly always a single-project stitcher, so when I’m tired of what I’m working on, I put stitching aside completely. Talk about motivation when I get back to it!
You’re so close… It looks great! especially the little flowers against the rocks. One day you’ll feel inspired to finish it, no need to force it!
It looks great!
