Hello, lovely blog-reading people! It is me, the blog-writing person. I know I have been MIA for a while, but I assure you that everything is fine - I was on vacation (two weeks and change traveling Japan, plus a few days with the in laws) and just finally got back home today. I will spend the next week (at least) catching up on reading, writing, stitching, answering emails and whatever else has piled up in my absence, plus also probably write a little about what I've been up to.
Today, I'll be starting with the stitchy pie for March - before leaving, I spent quite a bit of time getting everything prepared, but still found time to stitch and crochet and everything!
There are a lot of different projects in there, but only a few I still need to show you. There is the Pumpkin Doodle Cats, which I've been working on on and off whenever it fit any of the Magical Stitches Challenges. They've been making good progress though, and surely will be done before long!
Then there is the Lizzie Wallet SAL, which - thanks to a challenge - I've only just picked up for the first time this year. I'm still working on the first part of many, but I don't think the actual amount of stitching left is too bad...
And, of course, there's Ambarussa. I really wanted to get this one finished over my vacation, and I got really far, but it still has a little bit to go. I also didn't take a picture as the month changed, so this is a current photo, which is more than double the work it saw in March:
My other travel project was Charming, a Diminsions Mini I picked up last year. It has seen a lot of progress, but as I've been taking regular pictures of this one, I'll just show end-of-March state for now:
Almost 84 hours! Amazing. The wallet is really gorgeous!
Oh, you went to Japan! How exciting... would love to see photos :) Beautiful colors in the Lizzie Wallet--I look forward to seeing that grow!
I think an adventure in Japan counts as an okay reason for skipping out on blogland. Now that you're back, I suppose we need to order you to be more productive (I might manage 80 hours... in a year.). That Lizzie Wallet is a really pretty piece; looking forward to seeing more of that out of curiosity!
Nice pie. That works out at nearly 3 hours per day which is a pretty good stitching session.
Wow, you did work on a lot of projects in March! Looking forward to seeing more progress in April! :)
