1000 stitches! Getting a little faster, actually. It's a relief to finally start to see a design emerge, it helps me to work on it more. Plus I'm finally not having to start half the threads.

I got 800 stitches done on Tree of Life!

Man is this one slow. But I shall celebrate each and every row, and maybe eventually it'll look like something.

I also have to show off the top of a mocha I got at my local coffee shop. The town is VERY into Halloween, so it was a cat and a pumpkin. I may have squealed a bit.

Well, it's been a hell of a week. Lost my job, through no fault of my own, and am back searching for work. Had an interview today, but am not feeling optimistic.

Back to stitching! I got 400 more stitches done in the last week. It's really slow going progress on this project. I'm not sure yet if I'm going to mix it with a different project to see more overall progress or what. I'm new to having more than one project at a time.

Fabric Came!

My fabric came for my redo! Tree of Life Ruby has been restarted. I've been sick the last few days and incredibly stressed out about my foot (which has been misbehaving). But I had a good surgeon's report and a five hour nap, so I found the energy to put in 200 stitches.

Well, since I'm restarting Tree of Life, and I'm waiting for the fabric to arrive, I'm back to Celebrate. Got a bunch of leaf done and a little bit of flower.

There is a boo boo here, but it's gigantic (a whole huge section was one row too high) and I didn't want to frog the entire section. So if anyone can see the mistake, don't tell me!
