Helloooo, lovelies! (yes, I am in a good, but silly mood tonight, so please bear with me!). As usual, I 'cheated' a little with my WIPocalypse post, moving it to/after the very end of the month so I could show you all my progress on TLOA, but first, the WIPocalypse topic of the month: How do you choose what you’re going to stitch on next? I don't really have just one method of doing that. There are a couple of set projects in my rotation, like my monthly SALs that I work on when they come out, TLOA, on which I work (almost) daily, and I usually pick one focus project (Zoe at the moment) that I try to spend every second rotation on. Now for my other slots, Im mostly free to choose - sometimes I pick something that is close to a finish, or I draw randomly, or something just calls to me in the moment.
Now on to TLOA...I'm still plunging away on my 3371, while Rachel should have gotten to her first 'real' colour this month (I'll put a link her once I got to her post, I'm still a little bit behind on my reading). Last time I was here, about halfway through the 3rd row of pages in filling in the 3371:
This time around, I actually managed to finish the 3371 on that row, and also made it through the first 3-and-a-bit pages of row #4! That means I got to work on that bench again. For some reason I'm still super obsessed with it, so that was fun :D It feels like I'm getting really close to finishing this colour now, but the first page on the 5th row seems to have a MASSIVE amount of 3371 in it.
So, new stats: As of now, I got a total of 24.280 stitches done on this, which amounts for 20.44% of the whole design. Only 3740 stitches left to go in this colour! So I might finish a little earlier than the end of the year. I still need to decide if I'll sit it out to start the new year with a new colour, or just keep going in that case. Let's see how far I can by the end of November!
