I am still enjoying this project immensely. I have to force myself to work on Mama’s Bukid. I love how Mama’s Bukid is coming out but I’m not drawn to work on it like I am Gamer.  I wrapped up all the sides of the fabric and made a grime guard.  I found a cool tutorial here. Hopefully, the link works. I found that I have a ton of fabric to smush because it’s a big piece and the grime guard didn’t keep all the fabric in.  So next time, I will make the width of the guard a bit bigger to accommodate the bunch of fabric I want it to hold. Once I’m done filling in all the pieces on this page, I will need to migrate over to the 11×11 QSnap.  I started making the grime guard for that one when I made the grime guard the 8×8 so the fabric will still be too much for this one.  But I will finish the one I started and use that for now.

Happy Thursday!

I’m halfway through Row 11 on page 5.  My goal is to finish Row 11 this week.

I am speeding through this project.  I am enjoying it immensely.  I started with a small hoop and then upgraded to an 8×8 QSnap.  I ordered a large scroll frame from ABCStitch.com to put this project on.  I do not know how long that will take to get to me but I have a larger QSnap.  I think it’s 11×17 but I can’t be certain.  This is a large project and I’m only on the first page (of 50 or so pages) so I hope this continues.

Last fall, we took a weekend trip to Solvang and I purchased some Mill Hill kits.  Here’s my progress on one of those kits:

I don’t have the name but I do a bit on it when I have time or feel like it.  It’s definitely not a priority but I am making some effort to get some of my things finished. This is the first time I’m working on a Mill Hill design or on perforated plastic.  I’m not loving it but it’s a new experience.

Happy Tuesday!

Happy Stitching!

I’m halfway through Row 10 on page 5.  There are 14 rows on this page.  I am hoping to get row 10 done this week and at this rate I’m doing a row every 2 weeks.  I hope to get the rest of this page done by the end of March!  I started the first row in October which means that I would finish this page in 6 months. That would be insane!  That’s a lot shorter than the 2 years it took me to do the first page.  On FB someone asked me about the final picture. Someone asked me on a previous post here as well.  I finally did a google search and found this:

Farmland 2

I do not think it’s the complete final pic because it looks like it’s missing some of the clouds but it’s still a surprise to me.  I do not know what happened with the picture that came with the project.

I didn’t realize how much I got done but that’s a lot. It seems every night I’m putting a few stitches here and there and that’s helping me progress too.  Bukid is my primary cross stitch project so I work on that project more. I try to do a thread every night but that doesn’t happen every night.

Happy Tuesday!

Happy Stitching!
