Kristinaferina Stitches

{November 16, 2009}   18 Weeks

I thought I had done a lot more, but when I compare to last week’s pic, I see I was a slacker this week.  I’ve been reading more lately.  I’m re reading a series I started when I was in college.  Book 12 of the series just came out.  And I’ve got my fingers crossed in the hopes that R will pick up on my subtle hints (hey, if you are looking for something to get me, the new Robert Jordan book is out.  Go with my sister to get a discount, or get it from Sam’s Club for $16 – subtle enough??) and get me the book.  Otherwise, “Santa” will get it for me.  Ahem.  The same Santa who gave my dad some books one year, hee hee.  Anyway, back to the stitching!  My stitching board is having their stitchathon this week, so I should stitch more.  Especially since for once I’m not on the backstitching during the SAT week!


{November 9, 2009}   Um, math isn’t my strong point

I said I was 1/4 of the way done.  I realized today that isn’t the case, lol.  It’s a total of 12 pages.  3 rows, 4 columns.  I’ve got one whole row done.  That means I’m 1/3 of the way done.

Carry on.

{November 9, 2009}   Seventeen Weeks, and counting!

At least I’m 1/4 of the way done.  I didn’t get as much done this week as I’d planned.  I did lots of OT last week and down times revolved around running around.  I may break my rules and pick up one of my Christmas patterns.  We’ll see.  I may go to Mrs. Stitches this week and check out fabric.  I’m thinking with silk floss, I need some softer fabric?  Thoughts anyone?  I’ve never used silk floss before, but I’ve heard it frays easily, which is why I was thinking a softer fabric.  We’ll see what I can fit in this week.  OT is most important, need the $$ ya know.

{November 4, 2009}   Sixteen Weeks!!

I’m a day or two off.  But I have a good excuse this time, lol.  I left my camera at my friend’s house on Saturday night.  She got the camera back to me yesterday.  I think I’m liking this project now.  The top portion in pictures looks pretty good.  I can see this turning out to be a nice looking project!  But then, the subject it is taken from is breathtaking, so as long as I don’t screw up, it should look good!  LCT was a master!
