Not Even Close

Today the next page was supposed to be done. I'm not even close.
Well, I had a good run. This page is going to take two weeks. Using markers to circle a color has been helpful, especially because the color palette is so limited. Then I used different colors of highlighters to fill in after I've stitched. That color changes each day. Looks like I only stitched three days this week.
Actually, my house is a little more picked up, and I've gathered the tax papers. Lots of bloggers seem to have a bit of organizing fever, and I'm never sure if it's just something in the air, or if it's just the inspiration that we get from each other.

Seven Pages Completed

Seven Pages Completed. 7 of 35.
And today is the 49th day of the year. I'm still at that page every 7 days average.
I said last time that I thought the middle page seemed like it had more stitches, I was right, nearly 800 more stitches.
It's still 'fun' at the moment. I'm not stitching every day. The fussy stitching to get the shading to appear is still unusual. It would be very easy for me to get completely lost on the page.
I like watching the next page of stitching appear as the photos progress. It's like having a new piece of the puzzle suddenly pop into view each week.

Six Pages Completed

Six pages completed. Six out of 35.
Six pages times seven days = 42 days. Today is the 42 day of the year.

I've been distracted by shiny things, and any excuse to avoid cleaning, and fixing things.
Guess it's also kept me from stitching. The next page will need to be finished in seven days and it sure seemed like there were extra stitches in that last page.
