Adrift, Page 25 is Complete

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink!   This page was kinda...ok I'll say it, dull.   But it was a really fast stitch, which is always a good thing, amirite?   Page started on Feb 5 and finished Feb 18.  I wish they all could that fast.  Of course, it helps that it's February, the weather outside is drizzly and work isn't too busy. 

I've also hit the 70% mark of the project!   The end is kinda, sorta in sight!

The next page of Adrift is the start of her big, glorious fin.  I think it's going to be breathtaking.

I'm back on the Winter Hat Owl.  I'm stitching the last 4 pages.  It's so close I think I may just work on him until he's complete.  It won't be a fast stitch, though.  I'm working on the bottom of the hat, with its myriad of colours and confetti, and March is looking to be an absolute hellish month for me, workwise, so there likely won't be any updates until mid April.  But trust me, it will be a beaut!

So until then, happy stitching everyone!

Winter Hat Owl, Pages 14 and 18 Complete

Started January 20 and finished February 3,  7854 stitches. 

Look at that tiny little foot!  Just look at it!   I think part of me died a little while I was stitching it.

This gives me my 4th HaED page finish this year, even though I feel like a bit of a cheat for counting partials.   Not enough of a cheat to cease counting partials, mind you.

Only 2 more full pages and 2 partials, and this little guy is done!  I guess it would be prudent to start squirreling money away to frame him now, as he's definitely getting framed!

Back to Adrift now.  New row, and I'm actually going to try gridding with a pen.  Those little red plastic grids can be a bit of a pita. (For those not in "the know" pita is short for pain in the.... well, you get the idea).  I don't think I'll manage another page finish in 14 days, like I did with this one, but I hope to have an update for you in 3 weeks or so.

Happy Stitching!
