There is quite a bit of confetti in these manes, let me tell you, but I can't express in words how much I love the foals little black mane that sticks straight up. It's adorable. And did I mention I am now 1/2 way through this project? I love the halfway mark, it always gives me a sense of accomplishment!
I'm hoping to have one more update by the end of the year so I have three more pages in which to tally for my yearly stats, but I won't come anywhere close to last year. But I'm okay with that. I only ever keep track because I'm curious as to just how much stitching I actually do. And I realize that I do a lot. An awful lot.
Normally I'm quite hard on myself for making myself switch up projects when I get to the end of a cage, but this next page has the foal and the mares face and I just cannot leave them faceless. It's such a peaceful, beautiful pattern that I think Wind Moon will have to wait just a touch longer. But she will be back on my stand in the New Year. I've committed to accepting that she is a multi year project and when I pull her out I will likely stitch a row before she goes back into storage.
Anyway, the weather has turned and now instead of air conditioner stitching, it's stitching under a blanket with a cat on my lap for warmth kind of days. My favourite kind of days, to be honest. Especially when rain is hitting my windows, because then I feel I'm exactly where I should be, which is snuggled up with a needle in hand.
I hope to see you all one more time before the new year. Wish me luck!!!
